The topic for tonight Wednesday 11-03-2010 is “Acceptiong Change”. Sometimes we are faced with change that is not to our liking, like last night. How do we accept it? Life is a journey and we are constantly going to be faced with change. Not all of it is going to be good. Yesterday, a lot of candidates won who do not support Gay Marriage, The Health Care Package, and other issues vital to our well being. We need to deal with this change in a healthy and positive way that doesn’t affect our own health.

After break we are going to talk about;
-The definition of Undetectable Viral Loads. LabCorp now calculates Viral Load at 20 copies/ml where Quest calculates Viral Load at 48 copies/ml. The Department of Health and Human Services guideline for Undetectable is still 50 copies/ml.
-People who stigmatize HIV are less likely to take an HIV test.
-Mad Men Mondays
-Pot Luck Dinner
-Other issues

Come join us
