Local groups present online series on healthy living, HIV prevention

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center and FACT Bucks County are partnering to present “Positive Dialogue,” a series of online conversations about HIV prevention and healthy living for people who are HIV positive.

The first session will be shared on Tuesday, Jan. 26, at 3 p.m. via the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center Facebook page and the FACT Bucks County YouTube channel.

FACT Bucks County Vice President David Witchell will moderate an hour-long conversation with Clinical Therapist Dinnette Medina, Rider University Associate Dean of Campus Life Nick Barbati, and Bucks County resident Kevin Gilmore.

The first conversation will center on HIV and COVID-19. Panelists will discuss how to access local support services including HIV case management, mental health, and testing.

This community outreach initiative will provide facts and information and give individuals at risk or living with HIV the tools to make educated choices for self-improvement and tools to stay healthy, say organizers.

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center provides arts, health, youth, and pride programs to strengthen and support the LGBTQ+ community across the Greater Lehigh Valley.

FACT (Fighting AIDS Continuously Together) is a volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) working to improve the quality of life for people at risk or living with HIV/AIDS by raising awareness, educating, and assisting in the reduction of new cases.
