early eighties. In its short career it has become the
most feared disease of our time. Our generation has
grown up with the HIV virus on the news, in the
papers, possibly even in our communities. It has
infiltrated our culture. The Athenaeum would like to
welcome back Dr. Theresa Crenshaw to discuss how deeply the HIV virus has affected the lives of our
generation and our society.
As one of the most prominent sex therapists in the
nation. Dr. Crenshaw has devoted most of her time to
educating the public about this deadly disease. She is
the first speaker in the Athenaeum series "AIDS: Its
Implications Today." This series will address the medical, economic, and political aspects of AIDS.
Dr. Crenshaw graduated from Stanford University
and the University of California at Irvine medical
school. She then continued her specialty training at the
Masters and Johnson Institute in St. Louis, Missouri. In
July of 1987, President Reagan appointed her to his
presidential commission on the Human lmmunodeficiency Virus (HIV). She is president and founder of the
Ehrenborg Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of HIV infection. The two AIDS
Awareness Day programs Crenshaw developed won
Golden Mike Awards and an International Gold Medal
in New York.
In this day and age, you really can't afford to miss this
speech entitled "AIDS: Its Implications Today." There
is never too much information when it comes to AIDS.
Please join us for a reception at 5:30, followed by dinner
at 6:00. Dr. Crenshaw's remarks will begin at 7:00.
