HIV / AIDS Education
Did you know that young people, ages 13-29, accounted for 39% of all new HIV diagnoses in 2009? (Center for Disease Control, http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/youth/index.htm),

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
Research has shown that a large proportion of young people are not concerned about becoming infected with HIV. This lack of awareness can translate into not taking measures that could protect their health.

Today's advisory period is focused on helping YOU become more aware about risks, resources, and facts about HIV/AIDS.
