Fla. Health Officials Launch Faces of HIV Project

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The FloridaDepartment of Health is launching a statewide project to humanize the effects of HIV and AIDS.

The Faces of HIV will kick off with a mobile art exhibit in Tallahassee this week, followed by stops in Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, and Jacksonville.

The project tells the stories of Floridaresidents living with HIV and AIDS through captivating portraits, insightful interviews and poignant journals.

Health officials are hoping the stories of real people will help break long held stereotypes about the disease. The project also includes a candid on-camera interview with South Floridaresident Dab Garner. Garner was diagnosed with HIV early in the epidemic when it was referred to as GRID.
