Latino AIDS Awareness day discussion taking place today

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening today, local health advocates are opening up a conversation on HIV and AIDS in the Latino community.

It is part of National Latino AIDS Awareness day. Health experts are calling it a growing epidemic throughout the Latino community.  One in four people living with HIV and AIDS in Pima County are Latinos.

Health experts say the impact of HIV on Latino communities can be related to barriers faced by poverty, migration and stigma.

Today local groups in Tucson are opening up a community conversation about HIV and AIDS education, prevention and treatment.

Tucson's National Latino AIDS Awareness Day Community Dinner and Conversation is taking place at the El Casino Ballroom (437 E. 26th Street) from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. tonight.
