Road to Hope HIV
prevention tour dates announced

Group will promote HIV prevention at colleges in April and May.

AIDS groups Hope's Voice and the Student Global AIDS Campaign on Wednesday announced plans for the second annual "Road to Hope" HIV prevention tour, which brings HIV-positive speakers to colleges across the country. The tour begins in Washington, D.C., on April 3 and wraps up in New York City on May 5.

"With half of all new infections occurring under the age of 25, it is crucial that we reach young adults," says Todd Murray, executive director of Hope's Voice, in a press statement. "This exciting tour will bring education and awareness to thousands of students. We believe that this generation has the power to change the trend of this epidemic."

Each tour stop will include a Hope's Voice panel of HIV-positive young adults talking about their experiences and answering questions about living with the disease. Student Global AIDS Campaign representatives will inform students on how they can join the fight against HIV and AIDS and start their own SGAC chapters. At some tour stops, local AIDS service organizations will provide confidential HIV antibody testing and counseling.
