Radio Smart Talk for Thursday, November 29:
December 1 is World AIDS Day. It is a time to raise awareness about the global epidemic, to support the millions that are living with HIV/AIDS, and to remember the millions more who have died.
About 1.1 million Americans are living with the HIV virus. Progress has been made in treatment and most who contract the disease are living longer. The bad news though is it's estimated that one-in-five don't know they have the HIV virus and that's one of the reasons testing is so important.
Some 50,000 become infected with the virus each year in the United States compared to about 130,000 in the mid-80s.
Listen to the program:
Appearing on Thursday's Radio Smart Talk will be Phil Goropoulos, president and CEO of Alder Health Services and Tamara Allen Wurst, HIV Provider Relations Manager at the Family Health Council of Central Pennsylvania.
