I was able to help bring HIV info to the masses ,"Pre-Magic Johnson"
Outreach Worker (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAApril 11, 2012
Working for the H.D. was a very interesting,yet trying, experience. Interesting, because of the different calibers of people I encountered,trying, because of the level of stubborn ignorance I kept coming in contact with; ie: HIV is just a GAY disease,etc. Looking back , I understood(but didn't accept) the ideology of the time, these were the days when the disease was still considered a GAY,WHITE problem, before the devastation that eventually came to the black community. I learned how to relate to and receive from a client, especially on the street, when time is of the essence for giving and getting information .
Pros
i was able to work at my own rate of speed, therefore bringing the best results .
Cons
the resistance i was always up against, due to the level of ignorance
