The #BestDefense Is a Good Offense: A Walk for HIV Prevention — March 10

This NWGHAAD, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Women’s Health (OWH) wants to empower girls and women to make the best choices when it comes to sex because the best defense against HIV/AIDS is a good offense.

  • Host a local walk, event, or online campaign, and form partnerships with other stakeholders.

An education and counseling professional, I focus my expertise on diversity, inclusion and family engagement/empowerment Of particular importance is the partnership between parents and the community schools that serve their children. Highlighting strategies, tips and evidence-based best practices for family engagement, my aim is to alter mindsets, broaden perspectives, foster empathy, and build capacity. Offering 'food for thought' and inviting discussion, I also tell truths rarely explored. A holistic culturally-responsive approach to teaching, learning and engaging others begins with respect. I promote respect and fully integrating curricular diversity in formal learning settings! Collaboration with families is necessary, because parents hold the master key that unlocks doors to child health and wellness, academic achievement, and believe it or not, teacher excellence and stronger school communities.
