Short-form Q&A Video Series from Greater Than AIDS Focuses on Women & HIV
* March 10th is National Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day *
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, March 6, 2018 – Dr. Charlene Flash, an HIV specialist and primary care doctor based in Houston, joins the roster of health care professionals participating in the latest installment of the popular Greater Than AIDS video series, #AskTheHIVDoc. Just in time for National Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (March 10), this edition focuses on women.
In a series of short, engaging Q&A videos, Dr. Flash answers questions about HIV testing, prevention, and treatment, including, "What are the symptoms of HIV?" "How effective is PrEP?" and "Why are Black women at higher risk of HIV?"
With her easy-to-understand, direct style, Dr. Flash empowers viewers to make informed decisions and advocate about their sexual health care needs, "You do your part and I do my part. I'm going to walk with you."
Of the more than 1.1 million people living with HIV in this country today, one in four is a woman. Women of color have been disproportionately affected, accounting for the most new infections occurring among women in the U.S. today.
"Dr. Flash is a great addition to #AskTheHIVDoc because she empowers her patients – and women everywhere – to get the facts and start these important conversations with their health care providers," says Tina Hoff, Senior Vice President and Director of Health Communication and Media Partnerships, Kaiser Family Foundation – which operates Greater Than AIDS.
