AIDS: New Book Chronicles Epidemic Through Doctors’ Eyes
The international conference on AIDS taking place this week in Durban, South Africa is an opportunity for taking stock of efforts to confront the two-decade-old scourge. AIDS Doctors, a new oral history by Ronald Bayer and Gerald Oppenheimer, chronicles the hopes, ambitions, and fears of more than 75 U.S. doctors -- the first to identify and treat the frightening new disease that has shattered lives and made careers. California Healthline's Jeff Stryker sits down with the authors.
