Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville CARES announces its Red Ribbon Breakfast: Ending the HIV Epidemic on Thursday, December 5, 2019, at the Cal Turner Family Center for Student Education at Meharry Medical College.
The breakfast is held in response and reflection upon World AIDS Day, among many other events surrounding this important day of action. It will last only an hour but will serve to advance a Public/Private partnership to end the HIV epidemic. Businesses, professionals, elected officials, and community members are invited to purchase a table or tickets and invite their colleagues and friends whom they would like to introduce to Nashville CARES to learn more about the Ending the HIV Epidemic effort in Middle Tennessee.
Dr. James Hildreth, President of Meharry Medical College and chair of Nashville’s Ending the HIV Epidemic Advisory Council will convene a panel of business, faith, and government leaders to discuss Nashville’s Ending the HIV Epidemic plan.
Del Ray Zimmerman, Vanderbilt’s Director for Diversity Affairs and LGBTQ Health will also deliver a message of faith and hope for those living with or at risk for HIV.
Ending the HIV Epidemic is a reality that requires collective action. Nashville CARES, Middle Tennessee’s largest comprehensive resource for people living with HIV and those at risk, knows that it’s not only possible but achievable to end the HIV epidemic. That’s why they’ve made prevention, advocacy and support a key part of their mission.
Please join Nashville CARES for this important day of reflection and commitment on behalf of the community to end the HIV epidemic in Middle Tennessee.
Tables and tickets may be purchased at redribbonbreakfast.org.
