Zero Discrimination Day film and panel discussion at Dominican

Dominican’s Global Public Health Department joined with Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance and The Spahr Center to co-host a Zero Discrimination Day film and panel discussion on March 1.

March 1 was UNAIDS' Zero Discrimination Day. Though we have the tools to end the AIDS epidemic locally and globally, stigma and discrimination may pose the greatest barrier to achieving this goal. Stigma and discrimination create barriers to people accessing HIV prevention, testing and treatment services, putting lives at risk.

Getting to Zero: Confronting HIV-Related Stigma and Discrimination Locally and Globally
was from 7 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. in Angelico Concert Hall.

All were invited to the free film screening, live panel, and Q&A. Panelists included Dr. Ellen Schell, International Programs Director, GAIA; Andy Fyne, Testing and Prevention Program Manager, The Spahr Center; Melanie Nathan, Executive Director, African Human Rights Coalition, and Max Wade Flores, Poet and Community Activist.

The event also was stream lived from Facebook (  For more information, please contact
