    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    David J Malebranche, MD, MPH replied to georgiagail's response:
    Thanks Shelly for the introduction, and hello to everyone out there! Through this web exchange I hope to serve as a professional resource/guide to information regarding HIV for both those who are HIV positive and HIV negative. There is a lot of information out there, and new things are happening every day in the field of HIV research, prevention and treatment. I'm an HIV expert and have been so in the fields of HIV behavioral prevention and treatment for many years, but I would definitely not say that I know it ALL... Questions asked on here will be answered with the utmost respect and courtesy, and if I don't know an answer to a question, I will find out and return to our community with more information.

    I will be proposing topics on here for discussion, but most of the time I would love to have the online community ask any questions they may have, and that drive our conversations!

    Again, I'm honored to be a part of WebMD's HIV/AIDS exchange and look forward to some fruitful discussion!
