California: Los Angeles Clinic Launches Telenovela About HIV/AIDS
December 3, 2012
AltaMed, a Los Angeles health clinic, launched a serialized drama about HIV/AIDS, called "Sin Verguenza" (Without Shame) on November 30, and hopes to decrease stigma and raise awareness about the disease among Latinos. State Senator Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina) announced the telenovela at one of the clinic's sites to mark World AIDS Day, December 1. The multipart serial recounts the story of the Salazars, a fictional family living in East Los Angeles. Writers have based the storyline on the experiences of AltaMed clinic patients.
