AIDS

Greetings from the International AIDS Conference!

Greetings all!!  I'm a Program Coordinator at the Duke Student Wellness Center, and I have the privilege on reporting from an incredibly exciting event!

2012 marks a very important year for the United States...30 years of HIV/AIDS and 20 years since the International AIDS Conference will be held in this country (http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2009-10-30-hiv-entry-ban_N.htm).  I am lucky to have been chosen to attend the conference and serve as a Latina Ambassador!  I will be part of a group of people dedicated to sharing the happenings of the conference using social media, including blogging.  Follow me throughout the week as I interview students, health workers, and professionals on the state the healthcare system, access to care in the United states, and current HIV/AIDS policies.  Some of the topics I will address include privilege, education, social entrepreneurship and social justice, and advocacy.

Let's Turn the Tide Together!
