Art Against Aids

Art Against AIDS, a yearly fundraising gala, is back this year to raise money for people living with HIV.  CrescentCare, Chevron, and Avita have joined together to put this event on, with the proceeds going to CrescentCare’s NO/AIDS Task Force Division.

ABC’s Karl Schmid will be speaking at the event about the challenges and opportunities in the continuing fight to end HIV.

This is especially important being that New Orleans continues to be in the top five cities in the country for new infections of HIV.

The event is calling attention the U=U campaign.  “U=U, or undetectable = untransmittable, is an evidence-based message we must publicize to end HIV in our generation. U= U means that if you are living with HIV and achieve an undetectable viral load through medical treatment, you cannot transmit HIV to a partner. As medical advances go, this discovery is a game changer. Having people like Karl Schmid spread this message will save lives,” says Dr. Nicholas Van Sickels, Chief Medical Officer of CrescentCare.
