Please join the Latino Commission on AIDS on National Youth HIV/AIDs Awareness Day (Tuesday, April 10,2018) at 2PM (EDT) as their leading expert panelist, Luciano Reberte and Abdier Benitez, will be discussing topics about the importance of HIV testing in youth and eliminating stigma related to HIV in youth.
About the Webinar:
Today's young people are the first generation that has never known a world without HIV and AIDS. In the United States, almost 40 percent of new HIV infections are young people ages 13 to 29.
It’s more important than ever to recommit to the fight against HIV and AIDS. And most importantly, we must invest in young people - bring them to the table not only as partners, but as leaders that can truly turn the tide of the HIV and AIDS epidemic. Only by fully investing in young people - in their health, their education, and their leadership - can we reach an AIDS-free generation.
Two young men that work at the latino Commission on AIDS, Luciano Reberte and Abdier benitez, will share their experiences working with youth in New York City, touching on two important points:
1. The Importance of HIV testing in youth
2. Eliminating stigma related to HIV in youth
