Florida Health Officials Launch "Faces of HIV" Project
January 10, 2012
The Florida Department of Health has launched a statewide effort to humanize the effects of HIV/AIDS. "Faces of HIV" uses portraits, interviews, and journal entries to tell the personal stories of Floridians living with the virus. The mobile art exhibit visits Tallahassee this week and also will stop in Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, and Jacksonville. Health officials hope publicizing the stories of state residents affected by the disease will help break down stigma and stereotypes. For more information, visit www.wemakethechange.com/faces.
