AIDS Education Month 2017 is coming in June.
On Wednesday January 25th, FIGHT hosted the kick-off for AIDS Education Month 2017. Over 300 planning partners and community members came together for a great breakfast and inspiring presentations from FIGHT staff members and our AIDS Education Month Co-chair, Reggie Shuford from ACLU-PA and FIGHT Board Secretary Lovada Washington.
We also announced our AEM 2017 theme, Recommitting to the FIGHT! In this uncertain time in the healthcare field, we draw strength by looking to those who laid their careers, their freedom, and their lives on the line in the fight for effective HIV treatments in those early years of the AIDS epidemic, before our medical system and our country knew how to combat the virus and its impacts.
