Dr. Milena Murray joins Bruce to discuss the implications of aging and HIV. Since nearly half of Americans living with HIV are over the age of 55, it is important to recognize their unique care needs as well as the risk of HIV in people over 55 generally. Bruce and Dr. Murray talk about the use of PrEP and how people can approach sexual health discussions with their providers. They also talk about what to expect with the use of antiretroviral therapies in conjunction with other medications people commonly use when they age. They emphasize how care should be tailored for the individual and why it’s important for patients and providers to have open communication about their drug regimens.
