Washington Post Profiles HIV/AIDS Advocate, Singer Sherri Lewis
December 23, 2008
The Washington Post on Tuesday profiled HIV/AIDS advocate and singer Sherri Lewis, who was diagnosed with HIV in 1987. Soon after her diagnosis, Lewis met a researcher at Harvard University who encouraged her to take a position in Boston counseling HIV-positive drug users. Over the past few years, she has managed support groups for women, provided teachers with HIV/AIDS information, and taught peer HIV/AIDS education to high school and college students. "Training them uses everything I have: acting, directing, counseling and intuitive skills," Lewis said. In addition, Lewis serves as the host of a podcast on here!, a gay television network (Panosian Dunavan, Washington Post, 12/23).
