HIV is a Mirror: How a Virus Helps Us See Ourselves More Clearly

Part of the Rohatyn Center’s Future of the Past Series, this lecture by Timothy P. Lahey is not to be missed.

Timothy P. Lahey, Director of Clinical Ethics, Infectious Disease Physician, and Professor at the University of Vermont’s Larner College of Medicine, will deliver a lecture titled “HIV Is a Mirror: How a Virus Helps Us See Ourselves More Clearly” at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9 at the Robert A. Jones ’59 House Conference Room. As a part of the ongoing Future of the Past lecture series at the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs, this talk seeks to bridge the gap between the contemporary and historical in order to provoke meaningful discussion about the future of infectious disease prevention. Dr. Lahey will also address the striking parallels that arise between human biology and culture as they relate to the HIV epidemic, from the ways the immune system and our culture distinguish self from non-self to the ways social exploitation and viral mutability complicate our epidemic response, in hopes that they allow us to see ourselves better and be prepared for the next modern epidemic
