Research and treatment, outreach and education - these are the keys to defeating the worldwide menace of AIDS. Basketball great Earvin (Magic) Johnson, still vital 21 years after his HIV diagnosis, and renowned researcher Dr. David Ho will bring the two sides together at this event. The pair will discuss the advances that have turned what was once a lethal infection into something akin to a manageable chronic illness. Magic is sure to share his personal story - his experience living with the condition and his commitment to awareness and testing. The focus, however, will be on the future, including the next wave of treatments, the search for a vaccine and making progress in educating communities that are most vulnerable to the disease.
