Today, Friday February 11, 2011, SF and I took The African-American History of HIV/AIDS to the AIDS Health Fair at Blanche Ely High School. Blanche Ely is the Medical Magnet high school for Broward County so these are kids that are interested in medical issues. We started setting up our tables in the gymnasium at 8:15 AM and shut down at 2:30. All the kids in the high school were sent through the fair in hour shifts throughout the day. There were exhibits from Broward County Health Department, Broward House, AHF, Tibotec, Children’s Diagnostic Center plus about 20 other local agencies. As part of our exhibit, we had a comment board. These are the comments high school kids made concerning AIDS and our exhibit:
-Be Safe! Protect yourself!
-Good info we can learn from.
