  • Episode 38#: Pride Month: HIV/AIDS and the LGBTQ+ Community

    25 JUN 2021 · HIV/AIDS does not care who you are-- it affects all people of all ages from all walks of life. However, it does disproportionately impact the gay, bisexual, and trans communities. Lesbians are also at risk due to low testing rates caused by a lot of HIV/AIDS messaging being geared toward people assigned male at birth who sleep with men. Host Shane Allen speaks with Prism Health North Texas CEO Dr. John Carlo about what organizations like his and DIFFA are doing to slow the spread of HIV/AIDS, the myth that it started in the gay community, and how the cure might be right under our noses.
