Watch the Discussion Recording

The AMWA LGBTQiA Taskforce is proud to present the 5B film and a live panel discussion to honor World AIDS Day. The panelists were all active in HIV/AIDS care in the era before antiretroviral treatments. Free event, open to all.

“5B is the inspirational story of everyday heroes who took extraordinary action to comfort, protect and care for the patients of the first HIV/AIDS ward unit in the United States at San Francisco General Hospital. 5B is stirringly told through first-person testimony of the nurses and caregivers who built Ward 5B in 1983, their patients, loved ones, and staff who volunteered to create care practices based in humanity and holistic well-being during a time of great uncertainty. The result is an uplifting yet candid and bittersweet monument to a pivotal moment in American history and a celebration of quiet heroes’ worthy of renewed recognition.”- About, 5Bfilm.com
