SAN DIEGO, California -- HRC San Diego's next CONNECT event is scheduled for tonight, May 19, with the local launch of the #DailyBlue campaign to raise awareness about PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis).
PrEP is a medication that keeps HIV negative people from becoming infected. Approved by the FDA, PrEP has been shown to be safe and effective. A single pill taken once daily, it is highly effective against HIV when taken every day.
Noël Gordon, HRC's Foundation Project Manager, will be the featured speaker to discuss the #DailyBlue campaign and HRC's efforts in HIV prevention. Some local HIV/AIDS organizations will also be present to provide resources on PrEP and HIV testing.
The free event will be held at The Rabbit Hole, located at 3377 Adams Ave. in Normal Heights.
