Bush decision outrages AIDS activists

May 28, 1991|By Boston Globe

Harvard planners of an international conference on acquired immune deficiency syndrome, to be held in Boston next year, will hold a news conference tomorrow to respond to the federal government's reported action, which was publicized over the weekend.

"The entire public health community has made it clear that neither travel nor immigration poses a threat to the U.S. population," said Hilary Rao, director of communications for the Harvard-sponsored conference.
