Hello All My name is Dawn...

Hello All My name is Dawn 2007 was my year of diagnosis and it has been a life changing experience for me. I cant say all changes have been bad but I wish that when I first was diagnosed I had a better support system or knew of resources that were around to help me through. Today I am ok with my status I use all my knowledge I have earned to empower others, educate and uplift them to let them know there is life after a HIV+ diagnosis. I work in a facility that cares for positive patients I am one the first people they meet once they get there test results, which I am glad to be there to try and help them through. I hope to link with others to continue this fight and keep letting people know we may have HIV but HIV is not who we are!

In 2005 the Women and HIV Think Tank changed its name to WRI to reflect the work of the group and ongoing commitment to measurable results in the management of HIV disease in women.

Did you just test positive for HIV? Look here for help on next steps, normal feelings, and finding support.

A Place at the Table: WATCH! is an eight-week webinar series that offers women living with HIV* capacity building and training on HIV disease and treatment advocacy.
