Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS—Singer and HIV activist Jamar Rogers will be the keynote speaker for the 9th Annual Statewide HIV Awareness Program on November 8, 2012. The event’s theme, “It’s your turn to prevent HIV/AIDS: Individual Call to Action,” will focus on HIV prevention and early intervention.

 

“Awareness and education is an essential component to prevention and early detection of HIV,” said Lynn Smith, Bureau Chief of Critical Populations for the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction. “These efforts help to ensure Hoosier citizens live healthier and longer lives.”

 

Rogers first appeared on American Idol and then became a finalist on The Voice. While on The Voice, he announced that he was HIV positive. Rogers will talk about his experience being HIV positive and focus on prevention and education.

 

Other artists include HIV activist and poet Devin T. Robinson and singer Nicole Michelle. The event is free and open to the public. It will begin at 10 a.m. at Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet School on Thursday, November 8.

The event is sponsored through the collaborative effort of the Indiana Family & Social Services Administration, the Indiana State Department of Health, the Indiana Minority Health Coalition and other community organizations.
