New collaborative educational series organized by the North Country Health Consortium and facilitated by New Hampshire Listens.
This new entirely online HIV Town Hall Learning Exchange Series will include a series of four sessions, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 29, and culminating on World AIDS Day held Tuesday, Dec. 1. Each session will take place in the afternoon (3 – 5 p.m.) and include invited speakers and experts to discuss strategies for preventing the spread of HIV in rural New Hampshire.
The goal of these four online town halls include raising awareness across Northern New Hampshire of the risks of HIV/infectious disease outbreaks in rural communities, educating others on strategies to reduce harm related to these outbreaks, and altering community norms that stigmatize these infections. Speakers will include Dr. Kerry Nolte, an Assistant Professor of Nursing at the University of New Hampshire, as the keynote on Sept. 29.

· Oct. 20 – Syringe Service Programs, Harm Reduction & Naloxone
· Nov. 17 – Medical Care–Treatment as Prevention and PrEP
· Dec. 1 – HIV Testing & Linkage to Medical Care
