April 10th marks the annual recognition of National Youth HIV and AIDS Awareness Day (NYHAAD). NYHAAD reminds us of the importance of investing in young people’s health and education.
Tonight, QLatinx joins other phenomenal organizations across Central Florida to host a fest of fun for youth and their families to learn more about HIV & AIDS in the Central Florida community. There will be art, delicious food, games, and trivia for all! Additionally, we'll be hosting a community conversation specially designed for guardians and parents. We hope to see you all there!
