A Discussion About Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and HIV Prevention in Coral Gables
Robert Goubeaux, D.O., Primary Care Physician, Medical Director and Paul Seligmann, PrEP Services Coordinator with Care Resource are speaking about HIV Prevention and Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) on Thursday, June 3 at 6:00pm at the Coral Gables Museum located on 285 Aragon Ave.
This event is part of an ongoing lecture series throughout the exhibition “A Matter of Time: Examining Forty Years of AIDS While Living through a Pandemic” on display until July 18, 2021.
PrEP is short for pre-exposure prophylaxis. It is the use of antiretroviral medication to prevent acquisition of HIV infection. PrEP is used by people without HIV who are at risk of being exposed to HIV through sexual contact or injection drug use. Two medications have been approved for use as PrEP by the FDA. Each consists of two drugs combined in a single oral tablet taken daily.
The exhibition is curated by Shed Boren, Ph.D., Clinical Assistant Professor, Florida International University, and Yuni Villalonga, Chief Curator, Coral Gables Museum.
Please contact 305-576-1234, EXT# 306 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment or a consultation for PrEP. A healthcare professional can advise you on how you can take PrEP correctly and ensure that you are protected.
