This Symposium celebrates the opening of the “Kristen Ries and C. Maggie Snyder HIV/AIDS Archive” at the University of Utah Marriott Library. A major purpose of this event is to honor these two medical pioneers, who led the fight against the disease in Utah.

Three renowned scholars from different disciplines – medicine, social history, and law – will present the principal papers that consider the historical arc of the disease from the unique perspective of their disciplines. Panels of experts in each field will then comment on the presentations. Between presentations, Utahns involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS will present tributes to Dr. Ries and Ms. Snyder.

This Symposium is proceeded by the dedication of a history archive at the University of Utah Marriott Library on Sept 30 and will be streamed online on the S.J. Quinney College of Law youtube channel.

The Symposium is being funded in part by a generous grant from the Lee Teitelbaum Symposium Fund at the S.J. Quinney College of Law.
