Changing the Course of AIDS: Dawn Averitt at TEDxCharlottesville 2013

November 2013 - Charlottesville, VA.  Dawn Averitt, founder of The Well Project gave a talk at the illustrious TedX event in Charlottesville, VA in November, 2013.  She shares her experience being diagnosed with HIV at the age of 19 in 1988 and describes the journey that diagnosis has led her on over the past 25 plus years, including her first goal of just “making it to the age of 20.” Now in her  mid-40s and the mother of two beautiful HIV-negative daughters, Dawn illustrates the continuing impact of HIV and AIDS. She focuses specifically on the epidemic in the United States, where, she says, many people don’t even know that HIV remains an issue. She also lays out her vision for ending the epidemic in the United States, arguing that we already have the tools to do it.  Please click here to view her remarkable speech.
