DEARBORN, MI, AUGUST 18, 2015 – Nearly 16,000 people in Michigan are diagnosed with HIV, and another 3,000 are unaware that they are infected, according to the Michigan Department of Community Health.

The highest rates of new HIV diagnoses occurred among:

– people in their 20s;

– black men and women, whose infection rate is 13-times higher than for whites; and

– men who have sex with men.

New diagnoses are also increasing among white women, reports MDCH.  Infection rates have increased for three consecutive years for black women.

Because HIV continues to spread, Team Wellness Center is hosting a free seminar to educate the public and health practitioners about the latest trends and information about this deadly disease.

The event will be from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at Team Wellness Center, 921 Howard Street, Dearborn, MI  48124.

Dinner will be served and free parking is available.

The seminar will be led by HIV/AIDS Prevention Education Specialist Donna Stamps-Griffin of the Institute of Population Health.

Attendees will be eligible to receive continuing education credits, including 2.0 MCBAP Approved Training Hours.
