By all of us working together, we can help end the HIV epidemic. 6JKU KU YJCV KPURKTGU WU VQ FKUEQXGT UEKGPVKƂE advancements, with a goal of helping those affected by HIV live longer, healthier lives. But it will take more than just medicine. It takes all of us in the community doing our part to clear up the facts, correct misunderstandings, and erase the stigma that stands in the way of getting tested, knowing our status, and getting the care we need. Working hand in hand, we can put HIV and its impact in the past. So that someday HIV is no more. GILEAD IS A PROUD SPONSOR OF NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SOCIAL WORK AND HIV/AIDS GileadHIV.com @gileadhivus @GileadHIVUS


Welcome to the

34TH NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SOCIAL WORK AND HIV/AIDS On behalf of the Professional Association of Social Workers in HIV/AIDS (PASWHA) and Collaborative Solutions, welcome to the 2022 National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS! We are excited to hold our 34th Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. This year’s theme “On the Path Toward Healing, Justice, and Action” will not only address health equity, gender equity, and aging; but serve as a call to action for activism, advocacy, and policy change to ensure that the voices of those affected by HIV are heard. We know that HIV/AIDS is not only a health issue, but often a result of poverty, racism, homophobia, stigma, and social isolation. Health inequities continue to exist often along the lines of race, income, and geography. Social Work and our allied professionals stand at the crossroads of these intersections. Over the next few days, we will learn how we, as social workers, can utilize our tools, interventions, and expertise to address the many barriers’ people living with HIV/ AIDS face and improve the lives of those we serve every day. We will learn from leaders in the field across all sectors of Social Work. Our Friday plenary session will host Harold Phillips, Director White House Office of National AIDS Policy to discuss Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America, the Administration’s plan to end HIV by 2030. These sessions and much more would not be possible without the hard work of our Program Committee: John Hartigan, Susan Tusher, Cecilia Chung, Andrea Dakin, Amy Palilonis, Heather Hauck, and Gabriel Sliva, Thank you! We could not do this without the generous support of our sponsors Gilead Sciences, ViiV, Theratechnologies, Walgreens, PALSS, Aids United, Avita Pharmacy, Plus, Centers for Disease Control and Prevent HIV.GOV, Prevention Access Campaig U=U, American Exchange, Pride Life, Crescent Care, Falcon Theater, Healthmerch and Federal Partners. I would also like to offer a special thank you to our staff and volunteers including Nicole Brazelton, Valencia Moss, Kate Briddell, Bianca Hannon, Elena Hampton-Stover, Elizabeth Wilson and Keaton Johnson. I know this year’s conference will provide opportunity to learn, network, and be inspired to improve the health of those living with HIV. If you have questions about the conference or if would like any information throughout this weekend, do not hesitate to ask our staff or volunteers. We want to do what we can to ensure that this year’s conference energizes you and leads you back home with a renewed commitment to your ability in ending the HIV epidemic.

WEDNESDAY, MAY 25, 2022, 1:30pm - 3:30pm La Salle Ballroom - 3rd Floor 1CE Opening Plenary: Rebounding from COVID-19 Pandemic with a Holistic Response to HIV Sponsored by

Description: This 60-minute plenary session will take place during the 34th National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS and will highlight the pivotal role social workers play in delivering holistic, client-centered HIV care. The session will emphasize how this holistic approach has been adopted as the cornerstone of the National HIV Strategy (2022-2025), as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health and well-being of people living with HIV (PLWH) and those at risk for HIV comes to the fore. The session will examine how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the mental health of PLWH and their ability to remain in care, particularly those who are most vulnerable. It will also explore the key role social workers have played and can continue to play in bringing them back into care. Practical strategies for social workers to offer supportive mental-health care and other client-centered interventions to build resilience and improve overall health outcomes of PLWH will be explored. The impact of COVID-19 on the mental health of social workers themselves, and strategies for coping, will also be discussed. Objectives/Key Takeaways • Recognize the key role of social workers in delivering integrated, client-focused services that support clients in managing their health across the status-neutral care continuum • Acknowledge the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of PLWH and those at risk for HIV and understand how this affects their ability to remain in care • Explore the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative effect on viral suppression and the key role social workers can play in bringing people back into care • Identify the innovative strategies that social workers have employed to cope with the “new normal” and examine the usefulness of these strategies in a post-COVID-19 pandemic world • Acknowledge the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on social workers themselves and explore ways to support them WEDNESDAY, MAY 25, 2022, 3:45pm - 4:45pm Gentilly Room - 1st Floor 1 CE Medical Case Management Institute, Day One The Medical Case Management Institute is endorsed by the Professional Association of Social Workers in HIV/AIDS (PASWHA) and is designed to meet this HRSA requirement: Medical Case Management Services must be provided by trained professionals, including both medically credentialed and other health care staff."
