WATCH! 2017 Treatment Advocacy Webinar Series

PrintPrintEmailEmailSaveSave

The Well Project is pleased to continue WATCH! (Women's Advocacy and Treatment Coalition on HIV) in 2017 by offering a series of webinars throughout the year. Treatment advocacy can mean many different things, from advocacy at a community level, to the national level, or even the international level. Treatment advocacy skills and knowledge can also provide you with the tools to advocate for yourself to improve your health outcomes and quality of life, as well as for the tools to advocate on behalf of others living with HIV. WATCH! 2017 carries on the work begun from our A Place at the Table: WATCH! series from 2015 and the WATCH! 2016 series, and will address important topics as identified by our community, as well as information needed to continue to build treatment advocacy knowledge, capacity, and leadership development among women living with HIV. Please note, while this program is focused on providing capacity building and training to women living with HIV, all PLHIV, allies, and providers are welcome to participate.

Each hour and a half webinar will address a variety of topics. The sessions will be led by thought leaders and community experts and upon finishing the training program and required tests, participants will be issued certificates of completion by The Well Project (see below for more information on certification requirements). Sessions will be facilitated by Krista Martel, executive director of The Well Project.

The webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to participate live and will be accessible for one month after they initially take place. If you are accessing the recording of the webinar, you still need to complete the pre-and post-assessments. A final evaluation survey will also be disseminated at the end of the series.
