By SEAN S. on 15. April 2020 for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV): Signs, Symptoms & Opportunistic Infections

I am an RN student, 2nd semester. This lecture is very informative. I like when it describing the opportunistic infection, the lecture provides info from the type of illness, s/s, type of diagnostic tests, and treatments.

Thank you!
By Lauren B. on 13. February 2019 for HIV in Children: Management & Prevention

Very glad to have such succinct and high-yeild lectures. Thanks, Dr. Alverson! I looked like a star during my group session when I brought up that breastfeeding is advised in poverty-stricken areas, but not in countries where programs like WIC make formula feeding affordable.

Focuses on the highlights and omits the extraneous details. Felt as though this has helped me master HIV a bit better
