This Sunday, June 5th, marks the 30th anniversary of the first report by the Center for Disease Control of a mysterious disease affecting men in the Los Angeles area.

At the time, HIV/AIDS was a certain death sentence, but through the work of doctors, scientists, and AIDS advocate groups, patients now enjoy longer and healthier lives. Dr. Kevin Carmichael, of El Rio Special Immunology Associates, and Wendell Hicks of the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation are intimately familiar with the legacy of AIDS in the local community. In this video they share some of their thoughts 30 years after the initial report.
