Second Opinion

HIV

In 1981 the U.S. identified its first patient in what would become the AIDS epidemic. Today, people with access to testing, early intervention, and effective treatments can expect to live long, healthy lives. That was not true when Olympic diver Greg Louganis was diagnosed with HIV in the late 1980s. In this episode, Greg shares his own journey through what many consider one of the greatest success stories of modern medicine.
