AIDS Walk Atlanta with BGSA

BGSA is participating in the 2016 AIDS Walk Atlanta and would like to invite GSU Biology students and faculty to come out and walk on Sunday October 16th at Piedmont Park, which will be followed by lunch in midtown.
If you would like to support BGSA and AIDSWalk Atlanta through a donation, please follow this link to the AIDSWalk Atlanta BGSA webpage: CLICK HERE


All donations go to AIDSWalk Atlanta, which supports the following local organizations:
  • Positive Impact Health Centers
  • Atlanta Harm Reduction Coalition
  • Aniz, Inc.
  • Jerusalem House
  • Living Room
  • Open Hand
These organizations are crucial to local efforts to reduce the burden of HIV on our communities. They provide medical treatment, screening services, social support, mental health counseling, meals, and substance abuse treatment to individuals in metro Atlanta. Atlanta Harm Reduction Coalition has been a leader in facilitating needle exchange services in endemic areas and continue to advocate for evidence-based practices that make an impact.
The metro-Atlanta region accounts for more than 60% of HIV cases in Georgia, which puts Georgia at number 5 in the nation for new HIV infections. As of 2014, there were about 15,101 persons living with HIV/AIDS in Fulton County. Fulton accounts for about 45% of HIV cases in the metro area and only 73% of HIV-positive individuals in Atlanta metro area who have HIV know it.
Please support BGSA, AID Atlanta, and their partner organizations to help impact our local communities.
Thank you,
