This article was reported by CBC News Edmonton.
CBC News Edmonton reported that a new video produced by Megan Lefebvre, a PhD candidate with the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, features positive stories of five individuals diagnosed with HIV to encourage others with the virus to take their medication. Lefebvre believes the stories featured in the video demonstrate the value of life to others with HIV. "For our participants, they had a sense of self-worth. They had gratitude for what was in their life." Dylan Richards of HIV Edmonton said his organization is showing the video to clients who appreciate hearing from people who are in similar medical situations.
