World AIDS Day

On World AIDS Day, we came together at an event hosted by The Advocate in Beverly Hills to share words of hope. Panels from the AIDS Memorial Quilt were on display, and speakers included Olympic diver Greg Louganis, actor Mel England, The Advocate's Lucas Grindley, and Dr. Michael Gottlieb, the man who identified the virus in 1981 as a new disease.
