How can you tell that a patient has a previously unknown disease? How do you care for someone with an unknown illness – and protect yourself as well? How do you investigate the cause of a new disease, and find ways to treat and prevent it? In Their Own Words documents how NIH researchers answered such questions when asked to recall the early days of HIV/AIDS. Students will navigate this site where NIH scientists discuss the initial days of the current HIV epidemic and their efforts to understand what was happening. Video and audio accompany.
