Talk is Cheap: Saving Lives, Ending AIDS, and Putting Our Money Where Our Mouth Is

November 21, 2013
New York, NY, New York

On November 21, The Atlantic and the MAC AIDS Fund presented the inaugural Talk is Cheap: Saving Lives, Ending AIDS, and Putting Our Money Where Our Mouth Is, a Digital Town Hall convening experts from around the world for honest conversation to galvanize a complacent American public and corporate establishment to pay attention to this disease. Through a curated panel of experts and keynote interviews, we discussed these key issues in front of live and online audiences.

We hope you'll watch the video from the event below and encourage you to continue the conversation by following @Atlantic_LIVE and @MACAIDSFund as well as #EndAIDSNow on Twitter
