Event description

Description

SEEDS of Healing, Inc. (SOH, Inc.) is having a positive effect in the community for HIV awareness and combatting stigma. Our Inaugural HIV & AIDS Awareness Run/Walk was a success. Participants demonstrated a 30% increase in knowledge for HIV facts and a significant difference for reduction on posttest assessment in persons who stated, “I would be ashamed if I became infected with HIV.”

SOH, Inc. is encouraged to continue the mission to eliminate disparities in HIV outcomes for women, improve the quality of care received, reduce the number of new HIV infections, and minimize stigma associated with HIV. Our next goal is to focus on the core values of compassion and advocacy with our Red Ribbon Brunch (RRB). We would be honored for you to join us on December 1, 2018 at 11:00a, at Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church.

The RRB event unites the community to include those affected by HIV, faith based organizations, clinical services and social agencies with the shared concern and commitment to eliminate HIV. HIV diagnoses have declined in recent years. However, subgroups of people remain disproportionately affected. The Red Ribbon Brunch acknowledges vulnerable populations and reasons for disparities unique to our region. Resources will be highlighted, successful strategies for HIV prevention and what's on the horizon to eliminate HIV will be shared.

In solidarity, attendees are asked to wear a red bound or tied accessory such as a ribbon, tie, scarf or the liking to the event. We are excited about our enthusiastic keynote address by Dr. Cheryl Woods Giscombe. Additionally, we will have commentaries from local leaders in the field for HIV Care, live entertainment with music, spiritual expression by Ministry in Motion of New Beginnings Christian Church and a delicious brunch.
