Medical Spanish Outreach

In coordination with the Medical Spanish Class at LSUHSC we worked to produce an educational resource that disseminates information about safe alcohol use and sex practices to both English-speaking and Spanish-speaking patients with HIV/AIDS. Using various mediums, (pamphlet/brochure, video, slides to be shown in the waiting room) the class designed ways to relay content to patients.

Four questions were addressed. Click on links to see results:

Does alcohol abuse impact HIV disease progression?

Should you stop taking your ART if you are going to be drinking, are drunk, or recovering from drinking?

What are the reasons to care about protected sex (condom, mouth guard or dam) use if you’re already HIV positive?

What are some tips on how to have a productive visit and interaction with your doctor or healthcare provider?
