Panhandle AIDS Support Organization Presents the 2022 Amarillo Area HIV/AIDS Symposium—This Friday


After several years, this annual educational event returns to explore the current health interventions and outcomes for HIV/AIDS in the TX Panhandle.

This week on High Plains Morning, we welcomed Michael Timcisko and Nan Smalley of Panhandle AIDS Support Organization (PASO) into the studio for a chat about the forthcoming, annual event they're hosting this Friday, the 2022 Amarillo Area HIV/AIDS Symposium, featuring up-to-date information of the management of HIV disease, as well as addressing challenges associated with improving the quality of life of patients living with AIDS.

The symposium will be held at Amarillo College—West Campus (6222 West 9th, Amarillo), in Lecture Hall A. Speakers will present timely topics, especially selected to increase participants' knowledge of current and ongoing HIV/AIDS issues in the areas of general and mental health. They include: Dr. Arlene Hudson (Aging & HIV); Dr. Brian Weis (Opioid Use & HIV); Dr. Lindsay Porter (Prescribing PrEP for At-Risk Populations); and Dr. Amy Von Lintel (Art & the AIDS Crisis).
