Harbour Centre Physical Access Guide:
This year’s Summit will explore how well gay men, their providers and care systems around them are navigating the explosion of health knowledge in the digital era. Rapidly evolving science and technologies are challenging the capacities of professionals let alone average gay guys to keep up. How well we grasp what is emerging in these times could ultimately affect gay men’s future well-being and even help wind down the HIV epidemic.
