Educational Purpose

The educational purpose of the University of Maryland Leadership in HIV Summit: Preparing the Future is to educate, empower and engage the University of Maryland to address the HIV epidemic in their discipline, practice and engagement in the community.

Educational Objectives

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • State the purpose and components of the University of Maryland HIV/AIDS Strategy (the University of Maryland HIV/AIDS Strategy is based on the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and Baltimore’s HIV/AIDS Strategy).

  • Define current campus efforts to address the goals of the University of Maryland HIV/AIDS Strategy.

  • Discuss their role in addressing the HIV epidemic based on the gaps in the stages of engagement in care and the scientific and programmatic advances that make the end of the epidemic foreseeable.

  • Describe campus resources related to HIV.                                                                                        

  • Use the interactive guide to the Campus Strategy and associated curricula, resources/clinical tools, campus multi-disciplinary referral system and support system in place for HIV testing and linkage to care.

Learning Needs and Identified Gaps

Persons living with HIV in Maryland and Baltimore are not optimally engaged in HIV care and treatment. Current practice does not maximize linkage and referral for persons living with HIV to care and wrap-around services through a coordinated approach. Additionally, although recommended by the CDC and now the US Preventive Health Services Taskforce, providers are not routinely screening for HIV. Routinely testing for HIV and linking those HIV positive people through a continuum of care will lessen the impact of the epidemic. The University of Maryland has taken steps to create a coordinated approach to the HIV epidemic based on the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy. This educational activity will seek to fill the educational gaps as well as provide participants tangible opportunities to be engaged in addressing HIV through their curricula, discipline and engagement in the community.

Target Audience

Current and emerging professionals from the University of Maryland’s academic and clinical campus.
