Sex and relationship issues are always a hot topic, especially in Atlanta. And with the city ranking in the top 10 on the Centers for Disease Control’s list of new and existing HIV/AIDS cases, a conversation about sex, relationship and health is vital.
On Tuesday, the Spelman College Department of Student Health Services, in conjunction with the Reed for Hope Foundation and OraQuick, will host a celebrity relationship panel discussion as part of OraQuick’s “Life. As We Know It.” campaign and Reed for Hope Foundation’s “LoveHealthy” initiative to do just that– dish on dating, relationships and health.
The “Life. As We Know It.” campaign was designed to encourage students and attendees to get tested and be aware of their status for conditions like sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV, breast cancer, and blood pressure, which disproportionately affect the African-American community, especially women.
