Date:12/1/2007

'I Stand With Magic' Program Offers Free and Confidential HIV Testing and

Education in Recognition of World AIDS Day 2007

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In conjunction with World AIDS Day, Cookie Johnson, the wife of Earvin "Magic" Johnson, and Abbott are bringing the "I Stand With Magic" program to Los Angeles to educate the African-American community, specifically women, on HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. The program aims to reduce new HIV infections among African Americans by half over five years. Cookie joins the "I Stand With Magic" program, which has a new emphasis: to urge women to get informed, tested and treated for HIV/AIDS and provide tools for prevention and testing.

Cookie is visiting Los Angeles as part of a three-city tour of "I Stand With Magic" events around World AIDS Day. HIV testing and celebrity concerts also are being held in Chicago and New York City to highlight the first-year results of the campaign and renewed efforts to reach African-American and other minority women.

At the West Angeles Church of God in Christ, Cookie will be joined by leading HIV/AIDS clinicians from across the nation, who will provide the medical perspective on HIV/AIDS among minority women. A concert, featuring Mary Mary and the Soul Seekers, also will take place. Through these events, Cookie hopes to encourage women to "stand with Magic" and take control of their health by getting informed about the risks of HIV.

The "I Stand with Magic" program, a part of the "Campaign to End Black AIDS" (http://www.istandwithmagic.com), was announced December 1, 2006. Since its launch, the "I Stand With Magic" program has provided free HIV/AIDS testing to more than 21,000 Americans in 16 cities with large African-American populations. Additionally, the campaign has educated nearly 200,000 people with 70,000 enrolled in the campaign Web site,
