What to Watch: Thirty Years In Context

What to Watch: Thirty Years In Context

To help put it into context, some of my colleagues made an incredibly moving brief video about the timeline of AIDS research and advances.

I'll be honest. I teared up a bit.

Tell me in the comments - what does 30 years mean to you?
