Denton Record-Chronicle (Texas) (09.05.2013)

St. James African Methodist Episcopal Church in Denton, Texas, will present the “Building Healthy Relationships: HIV/AIDS Workshop” and offer free HIV testing from noon to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 21, at the church. The workshop also will provide health literature and speakers to educate attendees about HIV. One of the speakers will be Judith Dillard, a health educator with New Bethel CIC Church of Fort Worth. According to Mary Taylor, pastoral assistant, Dillard’s story will remind individuals that anyone can be infected, and the disease can be treated. Dillard was infected by her unfaithful husband, who did not inform her of his diagnosis. Dillard has been living with HIV infection for more than 20 years.
