We are honored to accept the award for providing continous coverage about the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The statisics alone are alarming enough that we are intentional about keeping the focus on HIV/AIDS. This has to become a priority for all of us. Unfortunately, African-Americans in this community are rank #1 for being at-risk for contracting HIV/AIDS. As of May 2019, Memphis, TN was ranked eighth in the country when it comes to new transmissions of HIV, says Gwendolyn D. Clemons.
