AIDS Clinical Trial Unit

I love writing my blog and truly enjoy the global aspect that it brings.  It has helped me grow more comfortable and accepting of my status.  Through this experience, I’ve been searching for a way to get involved locally.  I’ve reached out on several occasions to a local AIDS Service Organization only to be ignored each time.  I don’t know if they truly have no need for additional volunteers, or I simply didn’t meet their needs by being female.

While sitting in my doctor’s office for a routine appointment, I saw a pamphlet for the Community Advisory Board of The Ohio State University AIDS Clinical Trial Unit.  I contacted them via email and was surprised to hear back from them almost immediately.  The coordinator expressed enthusiasm to have me join their group and welcomed me with open arms.  I’ve now attended a couple of meetings and absolutely adore the people involved!

This is great to hear! I am involved with HIV research CABs as well, and I really think out voice as women in the community is important. What part of Ohio are you in? I know a few great ppl involved with CAB work in Cleveland and Columbus.
