Tuesday, June 23, 2020


2020 Ryan White Clinical Conference Logo

As you probably know, the 2020 Ryan White Clinical Conference will be held in virtual format this August, once again in tandem with the 2020 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care & Treatment. Find the draft agenda, below. 

Along with the new format are two key changes:

  • An extra day has also been added "accommodate adjusted times and shorter program days." The Clinical Conference is now scheduled for August 9-12, 2020.
  • More slots have been opened up for RNs and PharmDs who are the primary clinical decision makers in their RWHAP-funded clinics or programs."
