PAUSE from your Saturday activities and join us as we recognize National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. The African American community is in an extreme health crisis and we must create a legacy of good health to pass on to future generations. African American women and girls continue to be disproportionately affected, and our rate of HIV infection in 2010 was TWENTY times that of white women and girls. We must help ourselves and our daughters! The crisis we ignore today may be catastrophic tomorrow!
“PAUSE …” is an engaging 2-hour symposium designed for women and girls ages 12 and up! You will be enlightened by personal stories of
HIV/AIDS, empowered through education shared by medical and health professionals and encouraged to take action with a toolkit that will assist you in empowering others to PAUSE! Free HIV testing provided.
