Florida Matters Town Hall: The Rising Tide Of HIV

In 2013, Florida had more new cases of HIV than anywhere else in the nation. When it comes to the presence of HIV in Florida, the state’s six largest metropolitan areas could be states unto themselves.On Tuesday, Sept. 1, we hosted a special town hall at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee to discuss the rising tide of HIV in Florida.  This week on Florida Matters, we bring you that panel discussion, along with questions and comments from the audience.
