KNOWLEDGE. COMMUNITY. POWER.
Knowledge is power. And the knowledge that you are part of a connected community can give you strength. TPAN’s TEAM program empowers people living with HIV to: understand the basic science behind HIV infection; find/continue conscientious health care and begin/continue effective treatment; manage the infection and prevent secondary infection; explore personal issues surrounding HIV such as stigma and disclosure; and become advocates for self and/or community.
TEAM has been adapted and updated and is now delivered in person in a safe, supportive enviornment. The core components are in tune with the physical, medical, and emotional needs of HIV-positive individuals today. Best of all, TEAM is fun!
Everyone can learn something from participating in TEAM. The curriculum is beneficial for newly diagnosed and long-term survivors as well as everyone in between!
Participants must be living with HIV, 18+, and able to attend all sessions. Registration Required.
