Speaker Encourages Oklahoma State University Students to Undergo HIV Testing

January 30, 2007

The Oklahoma State University Sexual Orientation Diversity Association recently presented the program "Who's Positive? Operation: Get Tested!" The event included free HIV testing and a talk by D'Jaun Black, 22. "I was young, and I thought HIV didn't pertain to me," Black said. Three years ago, however, he became infected. He spoke about his disease's impact on his family, work and dating life, and about the impact of the medications he must take. "It took a lot of adjusting and a lot of things to get used to," Black said, adding, "It gets better with time." SODA President Michael Cich, a senior studying advertising, said, "Taking an HIV test is just as important as any communication in a relationship. It should be as normal as any relationship dialogue."
