Community Forum: 
on the use of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) as an HIV Prevention Approach

There are still a lot of questions that people have about PrEP and there are many misconceptions about the use of PrEP.  In response Pierce County AIDS Foundation, Rainbow Center, and Oasis Youth Center have decided to come together as a community and answer these questions and address the misconceptions. We have assembled a panel to answer questions and provide factual information about the use of PrEP. The panel will consist of a healthcare provider who is currently prescribing PrEP, a representative from our local health department, and a consumer who is currently taking PrEP.  Pierce County AIDS Foundation will moderate the discussion and will be available to help provide referrals for those interested in wanting to know more about PrEP.

We invite all our LGBTQA community to join us.
