The AIDS 101 Awareness and Action Seminar is widely considered the best AIDS volunteer training in the region. It's great for anyone who wants the straightforward facts on HIV. Participants always comment that it was 'more fun' than they expected, and they also appreciate how frank we are with the subject matter. AID Atlanta's Education staff believe that all people, regardless of HIV status, should learn how to safeguard their health and lives, including those of their loved ones. As the leading HIV prevention organization in Atlanta, we are committed to making a lasting impact on the health of our citizens, which can be achieved through awareness, education and behavior change, as well as early diagnosis, access to treatment and ongoing prevention services.
AIDS 101 is produced by AID Atlanta, the Southeast's most comprehensive AIDS service and education agency. Our mission is to provide a broad, compassionate response to the HIV epidemic through education, service, and advocacy.
AIDS 101 addresses a wide range of subjects and concerns. Presentations at each program may vary, but each seminar offers broad-based insight on the HIV crisis. The program format consists of lectures, special interest sessions, and panel discussions.
AIDS 101 is now approved to offer 4.5 Core Continuing Education Hours for Social Work Licensing.
