As Black History Month comes to a close, Gayle Anderson was live with AIDS Project Los Angeles to remind everyone February 7th was National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD), a national HIV/AIDS testing and treatment community mobilization effort designed to encourage Blacks across the United States and the diaspora to get educated, get tested, get treated, and get involved in raising awareness about HIV/AIDS in the Black community. Gayle talked with Dr. Steven Vitero, a dentist involved in the project, who is providing dental care for HIV positive patients.
