HIV Awareness Testing Campaign & ODS Celebration
On Thursday, April 16, 2015 the Office of Disability Services partnered with the Bienestar Grant & PartySafe to host an HIV Awareness Testing Campaign.
Students were able to recognize the risk factors associated with unsafe sex. Students also gained the ability to know their own HIV status and students were able to work collaboratively with the Office of Disability Services for student support. With education, students will be able to begin to get rid of the stigma that comes with those that are HIV positive. Students were also able to learn their HIV status in a confidential way. They learned about the on campus resources such as the Office of Disability Services in case they need support if they receive a positive status.
This Inaugural ODS Celebration took place in the LBJ Student Center Amphitheater. The purpose of this event was to allow students, faculty and staff an opportunity to interact with the Office of Disability Services at Texas State. Attendees also had the chance to see what services that ODS offers along with enjoying music, food and good fun.
Thanks to everyone that came and supported this event!
