HIV in the Classroom: Social Work Students Discuss Matching Medicine With Compassion

June 18, 2013



HIV is becoming increasingly biomedical. What do you think social workers bring to the conversation that can complement the medical side of HIV care?

Justin: I think, because HIV/AIDS isn't in the media as much, that people see it almost as being cured, and you have to really correct people's misconceptions that it is still a big deal. Even if you get it you can live so many years, but it's still a big deal, a huge epidemic, and it's not something to bat an eye at. I think people don't take it as seriously as they once did.
