Experts Available to Discuss World AIDS Day, HIV/AIDS Issues Facing America
Date:11/29/2007

WASHINGTON, Nov. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As part of its HIV Testing Campaign, Test for Life announced today media availability for leading experts on HIV/AIDS issues including HIV screening, trailblazing legislation and the growing impact among minorities and women.

In September 2006, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released revised recommendations for HIV screening that called for voluntary opt-out screening to be included as part of routine medical care for all persons aged 13 to 64. Across the country people living with HIV are diagnosed too late in the course of their illness, and routine screening can lead to earlier diagnosis of HIV-infected individuals. Prompt diagnosis improves survival, allows people to know their status and helps those living with HIV begin proper care and treatment earlier in the course of the disease, when the treatment has a better chance of being effective.

California is one state leading the way in the battle against HIV. Recently the California State Legislature passed AB 682, a bill that will make HIV screening a part of routine medical care. This landmark action has made California one of the first states to take major steps towards routine screening for HIV.

The following experts are available for interviews to discuss topics regarding HIV/AIDS and efforts to improve prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of the disease in the United States:

Dr. Richard Frankenstein, President of the California Medical Association:

The California Medical Association is the nation's most influential state medical association. Dr. Frankenstein, 58, is a specialist in pulmonary medicine and has practiced in Garden Grove, California since 1980.

Dennis deLeon, President of the Latino Commission on AIDS and Living with AIDS:

In September 1994, Mr. deLeon was selected to become President of the Latino Commission on AIDS, a service and advocacy program addressing
