Albuquerque, New Mexico – The Albuquerque Area Indian Health Board, Inc. (AAIHB), will host the 14th Circle of Harmony HIV/AIDS Wellness Conference to be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, March 26-28, 2019. The upcoming conference theme will be "Bridging Generations: Thinking ahead while always being informed by the past."

The purpose of the #2019COH is two-fold; 1) to educate Native Americans of all ages about good health, HIV infection and the risky behaviors which can lead to infection; and, 2) to share with health care service providers current approaches to provide HIV prevention and care services to their Native American clients and patients.

The #2019COH Planning Committee seeks presenters who can address the complex and unique  issues related to HIV/AIDS and have experience and expertise in working with Native Americans. The new abstract submission deadline is Friday, November 23, 2018.

In the past, presenters have been selected of their expertise in Native American health issues and have been drawn from throughout the United States. We anticipate another informative and motivating agenda.

Early registration is $75 until December 31, 2018. In order to guarantee the early registration fee, payment must be postmarked by December 31, 2018. If not, the regular registration fee will be applied to individual registrations.
