HIV/AIDS Town Hall Forum
Date: Friday, Aug. 17, 2012
Time: 5:15 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Location: American Red Cross building, 2111 Dana Ave.


Phill Wilson, president and CEO of the California-based Black AIDS Institute, will provide the keynote address at an August town hall meeting on HIV/AIDS prevention in Cincinnati.

The meeting—6 p.m., Friday, Aug. 17, in the American Red Cross building (2111 Dana Ave.)—is the third in a series of sessions hosted by IV-CHARIS and researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC). A pre-event reception begins at 5:15 p.m.

IV-CHARIS and UC came together in early 2012 to form an academic/community partnership aimed at creating and evaluating HIV/AIDS education and prevention programs and mobilizing the local faith community to address HIV/AIDS in high-risk, African-American neighborhoods. The Aug. 17 meeting will serve to showcase the plans prepared by participating church’s to address HIV/AIDS prevention within their congregation sand in their communities.

The Black AIDS Institute is a training and education center focused on stopping the AIDS pandemic in black communities. Wilson—who presented in July at the International AIDS Conference in Washington, D.C.—will share highlights from that international meeting and provide an education update and encouragement about confronting HIV in the community through mobilization and the development of strategies to eradicate stigma surrounding this disease.

The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Please RSVP by Aug. 15 to Camisha Chambers 513-542-9730.

IV-CHARIS (Compassionate Hearts Assisting, Rebuilding, Instructing and Serving) is a faith-based organization in Cincinnati established and led by Mamie Harris and co-managed by Camisha Chambers. It is certified by the Ohio Department of Health and provides confidential testing, education, prevention and intervention services.

UC researchers and IV-CHARIS have received support for their work from UC’s Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training (CCTST).
