AIDS Foundation of Chicago turns 30

1985 was a milestone year on the AIDS front; the first International AIDS conference was held, Rock Hudson disclosed he had AIDS and died later that year, 13-year-old Ryan White White was barred from his school in Indiana because he had AIDS, and the federal government licensed an HIV antibody test. Closer to home, the AIDS Foundation of Chicago was founded. We talk with the organization’s President about its work over the last three decades and the challenges that still exist.
