The Conference Planning Committee invites you to take advantage of this superb opportunity to market your products and services to our targeted audience by becoming a conference sponsor and/or exhibitor. The conference will provide your organization with an excellent venue to educate and reach many of South Carolina’s front-line workers, program managers and clients. With nationally recognized keynote speakers, expert concurrent session presenters and valuable topics, we are anticipating more than 500 participants from a variety of agencies, organizations, institutions, and clinical settings. Again, this year, the format of the conference will be a full two-day event. The primary audience includes nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, other clinicians, HIV/STD/Viral Hepatitis educators, social workers, other health professionals, case managers, service providers, teachers, students, people living with HIV and other interested community members. Thousands of people receive services annually by our conference attendees making our conference one of the most effective ways to reach and impact those infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS, STD and Viral Hepatitis.
