Free HIV prevention training for African-American women

SISTA Adaptation Training is being held on April 23 from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm.   The training will take place at 64 New York Avenue NE on the 5th Floor; lunch will be provided.

"Sisters Informing Sisters on Topics about AIDS" (SISTA) is a group level HIV prevention intervention for African-American females.   It has been proven effective in communities of color and is recognized on the CDC's list of Diffusion of Effective Behavioral Interventions (DEBIs).   The intervention focuses on cultural and gender-relevant ways to increase condom use among African-American women.   This adaptation training will focus on how to use "SISTA" to reach young African-American females ages 13-24.   The free training will be highly interactive and most appropriate for providers who work directly with African-American female populations.   This training is not limited to HIV service providers; all organizations are encouraged to attend.

To RSVP for this training, email iwebster (at) metroteenaids (dot) org.   More information is available by calling Isaiah Webster at 543-0094.
