Rock the Red Pump with Rx Fitness Lady

Happy Sunday everyone! Today is National Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.  I’m dedicating my blog post to talking about HIV/AIDS for the Rock the Red pump Project.

Red Pump Project

Part of the project requires you to put on a pair of your favorite red shoes! I don’t have any red pumps that I want to wear to church today but I will be rocking my red cowgirl boots to go visit my family in Sparta, GA after church!

Red Boots Los AltosSince I started this blog at the end of 2012, I have had quite a few posts dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness.   In preparing my previous posts, I stumbled upon an opportunity and joined NBHAAD as a Community Ambassador where my role is to remind people about NBHAAD (National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day).  That 13th annual day of recognition & a reminder to get your annual HIV test was on February 7th.

PSA: New Product ORAQUICK for HIV testing

Do you know someone who refuses to get an HIV test? I know you do, and it is repulsive to me from a healthcare and personal perspective, especially if the person engages in high-risk activity.  That is straight buffoonery to potentially knowingly infect someone else with an incurable disease just in the name of hum-mm…. Y.O.L.O. (You only live once), I guess.

Some people truly might have stigmas associated with testing.  That’s why I love this new product and think it deserves a public service announcement just in case you missed the advertisement.
