How Does One Become An HIV Educational Speaker To Our Younger Generation?

How Does One Become An HIV Educational Speaker To Our Younger Generation?

Lately, I have been thinking about being an HIV speaker, educational speaker, or something of that sort. I think I would love to teach the truth about HIV, get the education out there, reduce the stigma, especially to our young people, preferably high school kids.
The problem is I do not know how to begin such a journey, or where I could get such information or even how to get started. I believe once I got my foot in the door, things will… read more

Welbutrin

Welbutrin

I asked my ID for a recommendation on a smoking cessation and she suggested that i ask my PC for Wellbutrin. She said this was her “favorite” because its a stimulant that helps with depression/anxiety as well as a smoking cessation. I was wondering if anyone out there has ever taken this and what your experience was with it. Thankssss. Much loveeeee

A myHIVteam Member said:

I'm currently taking it for depression and it's helping me but I don't smoke.
