The Balm in Gilead will host its annual Black Church HIV/AIDS Training Institute May 27-30 at the Westin Hotel in Charlotte, N.C. The New York-based not-for-profit organization is on an international mission to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS by providing education and support networks for all people affected by the epidemic. The goal of the conference, which is for church members only, is to establish and strengthen HIV/AIDS education, prevention and care services in the church and community. This year's theme is "Bridging the Gap Between Compassion and Theology." Speakers will include Dr. George Roberts, special assistant for communities of color at CDC, who will discuss "The African Diaspora: An AIDS Update," and Robert Polito, director for faith-based and community initiatives for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, who will present an update on the White House's faith-based initiative. For information, telephone 888-225-6243 or visit www.balmingilead.org.
