HIV Public Education Town Halls

There has been an increase of HIV cases in North Dakota over the last few years.
The Department of Health is holding Public Education Town Halls to teach about the disease.
Family Health Care teamed up with the department of health to decrease the stigma surrounding HIV.
They are encouraging people to take measures to prevent contracting the infection and to get tested when necessary.
"HIV does not deserve all the stigma that still currently surrounds it. It is a highly treatable disease. If you are on treatment for HIV, your risk of transmitting HIV is very, very low." said Gordana Cokrlic, Wainwright Program Coordinator.
There will be a presentation in Bismarck tomorrow at three, and another in Dickinson May twenty-fifth.
Here are the upcoming dates and locations of meetings around the state:

Saturday, May 20, 2017 - Comfort Inn, Meeting Room E, 1030 E Interstate Ave, Bismarck.
