PENNSYLVANIA: HIV Health Series Open for Teens


Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (12.10.12) Aids Weekly Plus

Educating Teens about HIV/AIDS Inc., is set to continue its “Live Life Without the Disease Series for Parents and Teens” beginning January 12. The program is interested in finding individuals aged 13 to 19 years old and their parents or guardians to participate. The series intends to assist teens with understanding how the decisions they make on a daily basis affect their health and well-being. There are 10 sessions, each of which includes a healthy meal. The series, supported by Highmark Foundation, was first developed in 2008 after the youth asked Educating Teens to involve their parents in their HIV/AIDS education. Teens or parents who are interested in registering for the series may call (412) 973-9524 or visit
