Since taking office, President Obama has visited Los Angeles a couple of times, but today is his first San Francisco visit. Tonight will be a National HIV/AIDS Community Discussion at UCSF, which offers a chance for the public to provide input on combatting the disease. The White House says that more than 56,000 new HIV infections occurs each year in the U.S. Obama has three goals in his effort to re-focus national attention on the epidemic: reducing HIV incidence, increasing access to care and optimizing health outcomes, and reducing HIV-related health disparities.
