Talking about New HIV Diagnosis: A Girl Like Me LIVE

Submitted on Mar 23, 2022


Getting an HIV diagnosis can be life-changing. As with other chronic health conditions, people may have different feelings when they learn they are living with HIV, including anger, confusion, and other uncomfortable emotions. The news may also cause people to wonder what to do next and how this diagnosis will affect future plans.

In the 17th episode of A Girl Like Me LIVE, Ciarra "Ci Ci" Covin talks to two women who were recently diagnosed with HIV. Be sure to watch as these three advocates reminisce on their feelings at the time of diagnosis, provide advice to others who are newly diagnosed, and describe the importance of community during this time. You are not going to want to miss the strong, yet vulnerable, voices and experiences of these three remarkable advocates in this episode.
