Positive Living BC is pleased to host Timothy Brown presenting "My Continued Activism Toward and HIV Cure" with an introduction by Zabrina Brumme, PhD, BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, "Timothy Brown: The science behind the world's first HIV cure."

This event is expected to sell out and seating is limited.

Timothy Brown was living with HIV when he was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). His medical specialist, Dr. Gero Hütter had a cutting-edge idea to treat Timothy's leukemia by replacing his immune system using a stem cell transplant from someone whose natural immunity is resistent to HIV infection. The rest is medical history. International Researchers have recognized Timothy as the first documented case of someone who has been cured of HIV.

Through his activism, Timothy advocates for more research leading to a universal cure for HIV that is available to everyone regardless of economic means or background. He donates his time, blood and occasionally bodily tissues to help science advance toward realizing this goal.
