AHCJ Chicago Chapter: Breaking Taboos, Breaking News in HIV/AIDS

11/12/08     Chicago, IL

Jim Pickett of the AIDS Foundation of Chicago will discuss the need for new HIV prevention technologies, beyond condoms. Anal intercourse is a common human behavior, and unprotected, is 5 to 80 times more likely to result in HIV transmission compared to unprotected vaginal intercourse.

Johnathan Briggs, foundation spokesman and former Tribune reporter, will introduce us to PEERSpeak, an interactive program that provides HIV/AIDS education through the voices of people living with HIV. It's funded by the National Library of Medicine.

Rev. Doris Green talks about Faith Responds to AIDS and the foundation's work with the incarcerated.

Where: Columbia College, 33 E. Congress, (northwest corner of Congress and Wabash).
When: Wed. Nov. 12 at 6 p.m.
Refreshments at 6 p.m. Speakers at 6:30 p.m.
