SOUTHERN MISS SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK TO CO-HOST
INTERNATIONAL HIV/AIDS CONFERENCE ON GULF COAST
HATTIESBURG --The University of Southern Mississippi will co-host an international conference Nov. 4-5 at the Grand Casino in Gulfport, featuring a variety of expert presenters from various fields, including those in social work and community health.

The conference, titled "Social Work Practice and HIV/AIDS: Local and Global Perspectives," will be presented by Southern Miss along with Mississippi Valley State University Department of Social Work; the National Association of Social Workers; the Mississippi State Department of Health; and the Delta Region AIDS Education and Training Center at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

"This conference will be of great interest to social work students and practitioners who work with HIV/AIDS populations," said Dr. Jerome Kolbo, a professor in the Southern Miss School of Social Work. Kolbo said those who work in nursing and the community health field would also find the conference and its presentations and programs beneficial.
