The New York Buyers’ Club, a nonprofit nutritional supplements co-op, is sponsoring a free community health forum featuring Nelson Vergel, a 25+ year HIV survivor and a leading treatment advocate in HIV disease in the United States. He started his advocacy work in 1988 as a CDC-certified HIV counselor, and later founded his own nonprofit organization, Program for Wellness Restoration, to provide peer-based educational programs and online support to HIV+ people.
