Southern AIDS Living Quilt Project Coming to Miami
Date:10/27/2008

Web-based project educates and empowers through personal stories of Florida women and others across the South

MIAMI, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More than eighty percent of women living with AIDS in Florida are minorities, with AIDS being the leading cause of death for African American women ages 25-34. On Thursday, October 30, the Southern AIDS Coalition (SAC) and Test for Life will host a demonstration and discussion of the Southern AIDS Living Quilt (http://www.livingquilt.org), a website featuring real-life video stories from southern women on the frontlines of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The Living Quilt project brings to life the impact of HIV/AIDS in the South, highlighting the disproportionate impact on women, particularly women of color, and providing critical information about routine testing and the importance of early diagnosis. Nationally, Florida ranks fourth highest in AIDS case rates and second in the number of AIDS cases reported.
