In our efforts to more fully represent the communities highly impacted by HIV, NMAC will host Community Spotlight, a series of webinars that focus on our movement’s diversity. NMAC’s Community Spotlight will be an opportunity to hear directly from People Living with HIV, People on PrEP, and other community leaders. We hope to highlight the good work being done by community-based organizations, health departments, and activists. Our work leads with race because of its impact on our efforts to end the epidemic.
These webinars give NMAC another way to highlight and educate about communities highly impacted by HIV. We hope to raise the voice of these communities that are sometimes overlooked or dismissed. Storytelling is how we pass down our history. Think of the Community Spotlight as electronic storytelling. Not only are we passing down the history, we’re also recording it for future generations.
In addition to Community Spotlight, NMAC’s various divisions will also hold webinars or Facebook Live events. For example, USCA and the Summit will hold webinars on How To Submit An Abstract, Scholarship Process, New Attendee Orientation and Treatment will hold Facebook Live events on the midterm elections.
NMAC will host two webinars on the 2018 Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit:
- Summit Scholarship Process (July 18) – video
- New Summit Attendee Orientation (Date TBD)
