EXHIBIT | They Were Really Us: Opening Reception + Self-Guided Tours
They Were Really Us: The UCSF Community’s Early Response to AIDS highlights ways individual professionals affiliated with UCSF acted to address HIV/AIDS following its outbreak in the 1980s. Their responses included working in and with the larger San Francisco community – and continue to impact HIV/AIDS care and research today. All materials in this exhibit are drawn from the AIDS History Project collections preserved in the UCSF Archives and Special Collections.
