On the 40th anniversary of what would become the first AIDS diagnosis, at a time when a new health crisis has exacted a brutal and disproportionate toll on society’s at-risk communities, we invite you to join Billy Porter – actor and LGBTQIA+ activist and Michael Sneed, Executive Vice President, Global Corporate Affairs at Johnson & Johnson for a special screening of the award-winning documentary film ‘5B'.
'5B' tells the story of a multidisciplinary team, led by nurses working on the first AIDS ward at San Francisco General Hospital, who pushed through barriers and biases, and made it their priority to provide ground-breaking patient-centered care for an at-risk community; an approach that has been recognized and replicated world-wide.
Following the film, stay for an illuminating fireside chat with Billy Porter, 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, and the role of nurses in driving transformative healthcare change.
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. 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.
