HIV Presentations and Health Fairs
The Minnesota AIDS Project is committed to providing up-to-date, quality educational programming to prevent the spread of HIV, reduce stigma and improve the lives of those living with HIV. AIDSLine Educational Services utilizes trained staff and volunteers to provide HIV presentations to community groups and professional organizations. We also participate in community awareness events, such as health fairs.
The format and topic of each presentation is tailored to meet the needs of the audience. Settings vary widely and include social service agencies, treatment centers, colleges and universities, group homes, community centers, faith-based organizations, after-school programs, correctional facilities and others. Presentations are primarily offered in the Twin Cities metro area.
A standard HIV presentation is one hour long and includes information on HIV transmission, prevention, testing and disease progression. For professional level presentations, advanced HIV-related topics can be requested. These topics include HIV confidentiality and professional boundaries, HIV disclosure, HIV and other co-occurring conditions, HIV epidemiology, hepatitis C, HIV services and resources, and strategies to improve organizational responses to HIV issues. Depending on the audience and format that is requested, there may be a fee associated with the presentation.
