‘Berlin Patient’ Timothy Ray Brown To Speak In The HUB

Timothy Ray Brown, the only person to have been cured of HIV, will visit campus on November 1 to discuss his experiences in a lecture titled ‘The Personification of Hope.’ This talk will take place in Heritage Hall in the HUB-Robeson Center at 6 p.m.

Brown was diagnosed with HIV in 1995 while studying in Berlin, Germany. Known by many medical researchers as the ‘Berlin Patient,’ Brown will detail his rise to icon-status in the AIDS community, as well as the impact his cure has had on the hopes of many struggling with the illness.

This lecture is sponsored by a number of groups including AIDS Resource, Caring Communities, Penn State Student Affairs, and LGBTQA Student Resource Center, as well as Penn State’s Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Equity.
