CAMP Rehoboth plans to offer a six-session series called Living Positively for those living with HIV starting November 20. The meetings will offer speakers and each will include time for discussion.

According to the Center for Disease Control, HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome or AIDS if not treated. Unlike some other viruses, the human body can’t get rid of HIV completely, even with treatment. So once you get HIV, you have it for life.

The goal of the program is to provide a social and educational opportunity for those living with HIV. Each meeting will be held at CAMP Rehoboth at 6:30 p.m. and will include a free dinner and educational discussion.

The first meeting will be held on December 4 and 18, January 8 and 22, and February 5. Topics will include: new treatments, living well, getting older with HIV, sexual health, mindfulness and mental health, fitness and physical health, complementary therapies/homeopathic health, and ending with a celebration dinner.

The project will be under the direction of Salvatore Seeley, Health and Wellness Program Director, and Peter Pizzolongo, the Living a Positive Life Project Coordinator. Pizzolongo holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in education.

Living a Positive Life is funded by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
