SYNChronicity 2021 Goes Virtual Again

SYNChronicity 2021, the 8th Annual National HIV, HCV, STI, and LGBTQ Health Conference, will occur virtually again this year on September 21–22, 2021.

Each year, SYNChronicity brings together diverse networks of providers, professionals, organizations, and communities to sync on innovation across HIV, HCV, STI, and LGBTQ-related health care. The theme of SYNC 2021 is “SYNCing to End Epidemics,” bringing people and ideas together to end the HIV, STI, HCV, and opioid epidemics.

Sponsored by HealthHIV and partially funded by Janssen, the two-day conference will be headlined by six plenary sessions featuring experts and thought leaders, numerous cross-cutting interdisciplinary SYNC sessions, and innovative poster sessions. After the keynote address and opening plenary, five more plenary sessions will address “SYNCing to End the Epidemics through…” government, service providers, science, health department, and communities. The additional SYNC sessions will cover a far-reaching range of discussions about the latest in research, science, and public health practice.

The Conference’s poster hall will feature multi-media poster presentations from abstracts submitted on a broad range of topics and will focus on well-defined original research and/or new and ongoing best practices, programs, and interventions that “sync” approaches, systems, or topics.

For healthcare professionals and providers, SYNC 2021 offers continuing education credits. CE, CME, CNE, CHES, ASWB and ACPE credits will be available for all SYNC 2021 plenaries and SYNC sessions. Participants can earn an estimated 10-15 continuing education credits free-of-charge. Accreditation is jointly provided by HealthHIV and the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine.
