HIV/AIDS

UC Academic Health Center Public Relations

Government recommendations suggest all adults be tested for HIV. Researchers at UC want to find out if it makes sense to do so during emergency room visits.

Even on weekday afternoons University Hospital's emergency room is filled. There isn't time to test everyone here for HIV unless there are noticeable signs they may be at risk. For more than a decade Dr. Michael Lyons has been researching emergency department HIV screening.

Linda Seiter, the executive director of Caracole, which provides housing and other support services for individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS, joins Mark Perzel to talk about their recent relocation to Northside, the services they provide, and the ongoing challenges faced by those with HIV/AIDS, despite the disease no longer being headline news.
