Abbott and Magic
Johnson Foundation launch HIV tour

On Monday in Chicago, Abbott Laboratories and the Magic Johnson Foundation launched a 10-city, multiyear tour to address HIV and other health disparities affecting minority communities. The educational partnership will target high-prevalence cities with the retired basketball legend's story about living with HIV, and it will offer free HIV antibody, blood pressure, and glucose screenings. "Minority communities are faced with challenging health obstacles as a result of social and cultural factors, but we can change that," Johnson said in a press statement. "I am thrilled to be teaming up with Abbott to make a difference and build awareness among vulnerable populations about health risks to which they may be socially disadvantaged, to share my personal story, and to have an open dialogue about important health facts that must not be overlooked."
