In this episode, we explore the human stories, history, and work around the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Linsey discusses her work as an HIV case manager and we interview to local health professionals with experience in the HIV/AIDS field. Our guests include Naomi Ardjomandkermani, MPH, a local public health professional working as the Ryan White Planning Manager as well as a Diversity and Inclusion consultant and Candace Dornstauder, RN, a former HIV Nurse Case Manager and Medical and Education Services Supervisor for the AIDS Service Association of Pinellas.
tl;dr Get tested, educate yourself, talk about sex openly, listen and learn from the population you serve and don't be afraid to volunteer and get your feet wet.
