(BPRW) HIV/AIDS in the Black Community

A Conversation with Grazell Howard, Black Aids Institute (BAI) Board Chair

(Black PR Wire) Miami, FL – This is a time to raise awareness and reflect on the impact of the HIV/AIDS virus across the nation. Despite significant gains in case reduction, African Americans continue to account for a higher proportion of new HIV diagnoses. Black PR Wire's Thrivin' in Color podcast featured Grazell Howard, Board Chair of the Black Aids Institute (BAI), in an enlightening discussion on HIV/AIDS and the interconnected elements that make managing the disease in the Black community so difficult.

In this episode, Grazell has an eye-opening conversation with podcast host Camry Brown about the work being done at the Black Aids Institute (BAI) and measures that may be implemented among the Black community to reduce the number of African Americans living with HIV/AIDS. She also explores the rise in HIV infections among younger people. “Grazell made some very valid points during this conversation,” said Camry. “When listeners tune into this episode, I hope they feel the need to take action in bettering our community.”

The Black AIDS Institute (BAI) is dedicated to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the Black community. BAI is the only uniquely and unapologetically Black HIV think and do tank in America.
