Greetings Wise Women!!

December 2003

Welcome to the final WISE Words for 2003!

With the changing political climate, it is ever more critical to let our voices be heard. Getting quality care that is right for you involves expressing your concerns, asking questions and communicating effectively with your doctor. Often times speaking up can be overwhelming and confusing. This issue of WISE Words will talk about ways to advocate for yourself, and your community, whether it is with your doctor or your elected officials.

In addition, there's information about the new anti-HIV drugs that were approved this year. Finally, we'll tell you about some of the work we have been doing in the community.

Have a safe and peaceful holiday season! Peace and Blessings

Shalini Eddens
Program Manager, Project Wise
