HIV 50+ Strong and Healthy Scholars!

USCA 2018 LogoNMAC is pleased to announce the 2018 HIV 50+ Strong and Healthy Scholars! Our goal is to educate and build leadership among people over 50 living with HIV. Through this year-long program, the selected scholars find/affirm their purpose, expand their scope, and offers the chance to reinvent themselves to become active individuals in their respective communities.
