Elsevier Pride Virtual Panel discussion

7th May 2020 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Timezone: CEST Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna

Elsevier Pride invites you to attend a panel discussion where we will discuss the implications of COVID-19 on the LGBTQI community.

What are the implications of Covid-19 for people with HIV? Are people who are HIV+ while on medication lead to higher risks to Covid-19? Is there any evidence that HIV antivirals might actually have some positive effect against Covid-19? Does the aging population of HIV+ with related health issues (cardiovascular e.g.) have a higher risk profile? 

In the gay community, there are conflicting stories how to handle casual sex during Corona. Time to dispel the myths……..

The panelists include:

  • Peter Reiss (Professor of Medicine, Department of Global Health, Amsterdam UMC, University of Amsterdam)
  • Peter Hayward (Editor in Chief, The Lancet HIV)
  • Kees Brinkman  (Internist, OLVG hospital Amsterdam)
  • Sebastiaan Verboeket (PhD candidate, Amsterdam Medical Center) 

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
