Registration opens July 1
In Los Angeles, there are over 60,000 people living with HIV or AIDS. Despite medical advances and the promising new drug treatment options that are extending the lives of many persons impacted by HIV/AIDS, the AIDS epidemic is not over.
New issues and challenges have arisen for people living with HIV/AIDS. Issues of drug treatment failure (when the medication stops working), joining a clinical trial, disclosing an HIV diagnosis, HIV employment and housing discrimination, and coping with side effects are just some of the challenges facing persons living with HIV/AIDS today. In addition, under-served and difficult to reach populations such as women, minorities and persons living in alcohol and addiction recovery institutions pose unique challenges in dealing with HIV/AIDS.
The POZ Life Weekend Seminar
The POZ Life Weekend Seminar is an educational series of workshops that deal with living effectively with HIV/AIDS. The seminar is designed for individuals whom are newly infected, long term survivors, (living with HIV ten years or more), significant others and HIV healthcare providers.

The POZ Life Weekend Seminar is conducted 4 times a year in various venues countywide currently by staff, volunteers, medical doctors, nurses, benefits counselors, attorneys, nutritionists, researchers, peer advocates and peer support group facilitators. The weekend is usually conducted over the course of a Friday evening (4 hours) and Saturday & Sunday: (8 hours each day) in a safe, non-judgmental environment.

What our participants are saying:
"It's been 3 weeks since the workshop and I can not tell you how much I appreciate what I walked away with.
My life has changed in so many ways, my friends and family now want to go to the workshop. My outlook on life has changed from a stormy sky to a bright warn sunshine day.
Thank you to all the volunteers, you made me feel so welcome, you helped lift my fears, encouraged me to be proactive and gave me the resources to make it all come together.
Sunnie, if it were not for your persistence and passion and loving ways, I may not have even had the courage to leave my house Friday night.
One day, I will come back and train to be a volunteer too."
