The ANTHC HIV/STD Prevention Program is partnering with the University of Washington STD Prevention Training Center and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to host the “Prevent, Treat, Educate Conference: Working Together to Reduce HIV, STDs, Viral Hepatitis and TB in Alaska” in Anchorage.

ANTHC is inviting public health professionals and healthcare providers to a conference on how to best reach, treat and educate those at greatest risk for HIV and STDs, viral hepatitis and TB infections. This conference expands the Clinical STD Update that has been hosted by the University of Washington for health care providers annually in Anchorage, to a three-day conference that will also welcome providers from the behavioral, medical, social service and education fields that serve at-risk Alaskans.
