More on Radio Shows, AIDS Day Dec. 1

Date/Time: _November 30, 2013___, 9:00 a.m. (CST), 10:00 a.m. (EST)

On Monday, Dec. 2, at 6 pm EST, I’ll be on Dr. Jeanette Gallagher’s hour-long blog radio program, a call-in program at (424) 258-9318, where you may call in anytime during the whole hour. Here’s the link:


Reminding everybody that Sunday, Dec. 1, is international AIDS Day. When I was in Honduras, we always scheduled special activities for AIDS Day, including outdoor AIDS information skits performed by teens and a march through town carrying a homemade AIDS Day banner. New AIDS infections have been reduced dramatically worldwide. In 2012, the last year where figures are available, there were still 2.3 million new infections, including 260,000 among children. Some 35.3 million were living with AIDS, many thanks to antiretroviral drugs, and 1.6 million had died of the disease, so we still have a long way to go. My Cuban foster son, Alex, as my book readers know, died of AIDS in 1995.
