Thousands of people living with HIV across the U.S. have been imprisoned under HIV-specific criminal laws since the mid-1980s. In recent years, lawmakers in several states have begun considering whether they ought to extend those laws to include additional diseases such as hepatitis or meningitis.

He is the author of “Punishing Disease” and co-editor of “The War on Sex.” A Carolina alum (Class of 2005), he is especially excited to return to Chapel Hill for an event at Flyleaf.
