HBCU Know Your Status Tour

First and foremost it is important for everyone to be aware of their health status whether you’re in college or not, especially if you are sexually active; or had been sexually active.

In an effort to educate sexually active young adults, The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) kicked off a multi-city Know your  Status Tour in

Tallahassee, Florida on the campus of Florida A&M University #knowyourstatus. The AHF Youth Task Force teamed up with social media and pop culture influencers Nina Parker, Karen Civil, Don Benjamin, Amber Rose, Sibley, Cordell Broadus, and Jacquees. The goal was to have open dialogue while educating students about the importance of safer sex and taking the proper precautions to avoid STDs.

 

Each year, over 10 million young adults in the United States contract an STD. The most commonly reported STDs are Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. The tour features celebrity panel discussions, breakout discussions, specialized school activities, social media pledges and musical performances by influential artists.

The overall Goal is for students to get STD and HIV testing. There are incentives for student participation: custom t-shirts, as well as additional prizes including 1) $5,000 student scholarship, 2) Pimp My Dorm Room for participating schools, and 3) tablet giveaway for each campus.
