About AIDS

All stressed up and nowhere to go?

Then come to ASA on Thursday, March 25, for Dining with the Doctor, and learn How to Stress-Manage Your HIV. Stress is second only to HIV as an immune system depressant, so the last thing a poz person needs is stress out of control!

The presenter will be Nadine Thomson, ACRN, MSN, FNP-C, a nurse practitioner from El Paso. An AIDS specialist certified by the American Academy of HIV Medicine, Nadine provides primary care to approximately 500 HIV-positive patients at La Fe CARE Center, El Paso's equivalent of the David Powell Clinic. Nadine is an outgoing, enjoyable speaker, and simultaneous Spanish translation will be provided.

This is the second program in ASA's 2004 Dining with the Doctor series addressing the questions that people with HIV ask most frequently. The free dinner and program will begin at 6:30pm at AIDS Services of Austin, 7215 Cameron Rd., just north of St. John's. Clients of ASA, ALLGO, CARE, and Women Rising will be eligible to participate in a drawing for $20 gift cards. The evening is being generously underwritten by Bristol-Myers-Squibb.

So come to ASA on March 25 and learn to relax. Your body will thank you!
