New York: Access HIV Prevention Videos and Education
June 8, 2009
Westchester County residents can now access local HIV/AIDS resources online thanks to the launch of a new Facebook page, Project WAVE Westchester (PWW).
PWW's Facebook page contains information about upcoming HIV testing events as well as prevention videos and public service announcements that focus on the importance of testing. To visit the page, go to www.facebook.com and register for a free account. Members then enter "Project Wave" into the search function to access PWW.
"I think it's great that Project WAVE is using this popular Web site to provide valuable information about HIV/AIDS services to Westchester residents," said Dr. Joshua Lipsman, the county's health commissioner. "Many people spend a lot of time on these social networking Web sites, and this is another way for the public health community to reach out to residents and help them get the services, support, and resources they need. It also enables residents to find others who share their interests and concerns."
