RWC-340B held its second national conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida – the epicenter of the domestic AIDS epidemic – on January 6-7, 2020. We were especially honored that Jeanne White-Ginder, Ryan White’s mother, was our Keynote Speaker. Her remarks were a stirring reminder of the origins of the Ryan White law and why our clinics fight every day to end the epidemic. This gathering of the nation’s top HIV/AIDS focused providers featured local and national leaders who spoke about the unique challenges facing Ryan White clinics, sexually transmitted disease clinics, federally qualified health centers and other grantees and sub-grantees dedicated to caring for people living with HIV/AIDS. Underscoring the entire conference is the fact that with 340B savings, Ryan White clinics are able to stretch their grant funds, offer a wider range of services, and improve the quality of care persons living with HIV/AIDS receive.
Key sessions included: Regulatory and Legislative Update, Clinical Focus on STD & HIV/AIDS, Contract Pharmacy, Program Income, Discriminatory Reimbursement, Audits, and Peer-to-Peer Coaching.
