Wednesday, March 8th, 7PM-9:30PM at The Bronx Documentary Center:
How To Survive A Plague is the story of two coalitions— ACT UP New Yorkand TAG (Treatment Action Group)—whose activism and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition. Despite having no scientific training, these self-made activists infiltrated the pharmaceutical industry and helped identify promising new drugs, moving them from experimental trials to patients in record time.
Book signing of David Frances’ How to Survive a Plague: The Inside Story of How Citizens and Science Tamed AIDS will follow the screening.
