HIV/AIDS, COVID-19 and Nurses Tackling Health Equity with Billy Porter

From Ward 5B—the first dedicated AIDS unit at San Francisco General in the 1980—to the front lines of COVID-19, nurses and other healthcare professionals have demonstrated a courageous and unwavering commitment to transforming healthcare. Join us and watch this Fireside Chat to celebrate their pivotal contributions.
  • View an illuminating Fireside Chat with Billy Porter, actor and LGBTQIA+ activist, Ward 5B nurse Alison Moëd Paolercio, RN MS; and nurse, entrepreneur, innovator and author Rebecca Love RN, MSN, FIEL as they discuss the disproportionate toll that epidemics and pandemics take on at-risk communities, the parallels between the HIV/AIDS and COVID-19 crises, the role of nurses in driving transformative healthcare change and working towards a more equitable future.

    Johnson & Johnson, in our ongoing commitment to closing the health equity gap, recognizes the critical role nurses and other front line health workers play in improving patient outcomes, addressing health inequity, strengthening health systems, and transforming healthcare. For over 25 years, Johnson & Johnson has also been a pioneer in the fight against HIV/AIDS—developing nine medicines to advance treatment and prognosis and is currently working on an HIV vaccine to help prevent it altogether.
