The Internet Sexuality Information Services, Inc. (ISIS) hosts an annual conference on using technology to increase access to sexual health information among youth -- and Sex::Tech is less than two weeks away! As ISIS' Margaret Lucas told us, "Sex::Tech brings together leaders in the fields of STD/HIV prevention, education, unplanned pregnancy prevention, government and technology to explore ways new media can improve young people's access to sexual health information. These pioneers will lead discussions on ways to harness the Internet, social networks and mobile technologies to advance sexual health. The Sex::Tech 2010 program includes successes, innovations, technology intensives and expert insights, in addition to providing a platform to showcase youth-led advocacy."

I recently had a conversation with LaMont "Montee" Evans of Healthy Black Communities to talk about plans for National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD). On February 7, 2010, the nation will recognize NBHAAD for the 10th year. Evans serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Healthy Black Communities, Inc., the lead organization on the Strategic Leadership Council (SLC) which plans and directs this day annually. This year's theme is "HIV/AIDS Prevention: A Choice and Lifestyle."
