About this event
2022 Keynote Speaker: De’Shea Coney is the HepConnect Coordinator for the North Carolina AIDS Action Network. De'Shea is originally from Montgomery, Alabama, and has lived the experience of dealing with the marginalized intersections of race and being a sexual minority while growing up in the Deep South. De'Shea's HIV and HCV prevention advocacy brings hope and resonates with the World AIDS Day 2022 theme: "Equalize. The call to action is to address social and healthcare inequalities to End the Epidemic. This includes health equity, social justice, healthcare access for all, policy reform, stigma reduction, and inclusion practices.
Red Ribbon Event attendees will observe the panels from the National AIDS Memorial.
Everyone enjoyed the Cameron Art Museum exhibits, and listened to the Live Performance by Darryl "Soul Sax" Murrill."
