AIDS is a disease that is not going away. The annual rate of new HIV infection in the U.S. has increased to 53,000 and fifty percent of those cases are occurring in the 15 to 24 year old age group. We can't let our guard down in this time of complacency.
Living and Loving in a World with AIDS is a powerful, eye-opening program about the about the AIDS epidemic today. Elaine's message presents a wake up call to young adults in an era when they do not believe that HIV can happen to them. She personally witnessed its ravages and understands the stigma, as her mother and stepfather lost their lives to AIDS-related complications.
After experiencing this award-winning program students truly understand the life and death importance of HIV/AIDS. Her audiences leave this emotionally charged program with a greater sense of compassion for those who are infected with HIV/AIDS and they are personally transformed to take precautions and assume responsibility for their behavior choices.
This program is a must for an AIDS awareness event. As a panel maker for the AIDS Memorial Quilt, Elaine can supplement your AIDS Quilt Display with a powerful message of honor, awareness and prevention.
