Staff and volunteers working in HIV Alliance’s Education Program offer presentations to schools, treatment centers, community groups and others to provide information on how HIV and Hepatitis C (HCV) are transmitted, prevention strategies to reduce the risk of contracting or spreading HIV and HCV. We also work to reduce stigma by sharing the real life stories of individuals living with or affected by these diseases.
Please contact our Volunteer and Education Assistant, Chau Nguyen at email@example.com , for more information about our education services or to request one or more of the following presentations.
For all POZ, HIV 101, and HCV 101 trainings, presenters can work with individual instructors to tailor presentations to the education and maturity levels of the students. Our presentations can also include a simple five-step decision making model so that students can begin to use critical thinking skills to manage complex or difficult decisions regarding their choices and behaviors. We may also administer a simple, short pre and post presentation test to measure increased knowledge.
We encourage you to take advantage of this free service and to plan ahead so that we can get your classes scheduled as much in advance of your desired presentation date as is reasonable. We also encourage you to consider combining the POZ and HIV 101 presentations into one 90 minute visit as this has proven to be a very effective option.
