Members of presidential HIV/AIDS council explain reasons for resigning, staying
June 29, 2017

Their resignations were spurred by an email conversation among the group, according to Lucey Bradley-Springer, PhD, RN, associate professor emerita in the division of infectious diseases, University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine, and editor of the Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care.
