Today is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day and we are so excited to present a story telling program and community discussion at 4pm. We will be connecting the focus of this years' national theme for black history month (The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity) and the today's Awareness Day to have an organic conversation about how Stigma and Judgement have affected the Black Community as a whole and what we need to do as a people to bring healing to our intersectional communities as we all rally to continue the fight to end the HIV epidemic.
This program will be aired on the DC Center Face Page via FB Live

The CDC continues to study the spread and effects of the novel coronavirus across the United States. They now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms. This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity—for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing—even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

HIV self-testing kits being discontinued at CVS in Bethesda 20814. Curious if others are seeing this in other neighborhoods and stores. This is largely an upper- and upper-middle-income community, and there are no public testing providers here, just medical practices and Suburban Hospital.
