I haven't been blogging much lately but that ends today. Today is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day and it is a day to use social media to get a message across. The message is, Get Tested, Get Educated, Talk to Everyone, Protect Yourself, Repeat.
If we think HIV/AIDS is over in the US, we're wrong. As an example, in the United States, African Americans comprise 46% of all HIV cases, they only comprise 12% of the total population. We have plenty of work to do here in the US and everyone can and should play a part.
Now I'm going to turn it over to Rae Lewis-Thornton. She has been living with HIV for a long time and her message is simple, even if it isn't easy. She is a beautiful Diva, and a real hero of mine. She'll spend the day using social medical to get her message across. Check her out. She is awesome. http://www.raelewisthornton.com/
