Leonard Sandler, clinical professor of law who directs a legal clinic for people with AIDS and HIV who believe their rights have been violated, and Kris Davis, an advanced registered nurse practitioner who for the last 10 years has worked with the HIV program at UI Hospitals and Clinics, will join host David Leshtz of the UI Hospital School for "Access at Iowa," part of the UI Radio Forum series.
