December 2, 2021

On World Aids Day, Celeste Watkins-Hayes participated in a discussion at The City Club of Cleveland, on the importance of activism and community leadership to confront the inequalities perpetuated by HIV/AIDS and useful lessons that can apply to many modern challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The remarkable conversion of HIV/AIDS from an inevitable death sentence to a manageable chronic illness is not only one of the most noteworthy medical achievements of the past forty years, but it is also a significant political and social achievement,” Watkins-Hayes said.
