Life Skills
Support Workshops

Welcome to our Webpage!!

We are proud to announce the launch of our new Webpage -- Life Skills Support Workshops  (lifeskillsupport.org)

We are a group that meets monthly and discuss how to manage and learn to live safely with infectious disease in our lives.
Very often we have guest speakers from different pharmacutical companies to offer insight on new drugs and how they relate to day to day living. There are discussions on nutrition, living healthier lives, personal experiences with side-effects and how it effects our lives, stigma in the community and how to rise above it and many other lively discussions. Being informed is the greatest satisfaction.

We would like you to join us for a friendly, often lively and always informative community discussion. And lunch is provided!
If you would like to attend, please contact the group leaders listed in the Workshop description.  We do ask that, if you attend, you must respect the privacy of members of the group and maintain confidentality concerning anything you hear.   

If anyone has photographs of the World AIDS Day event, get an OK from folks on the picture and forward them to me

About the Webpage

It is our intention to present as much of the monthly Workshops experience to this site as possible. In addition, there will be consolidated news articles within and links to sources outside of the website. This will include handouts and magazines that are available to read at the clinic. If you are not familiar with these magazines and news sites, feel free to browse and read more.

Much of the news comes to us from Twitter, Poz Magazine, HIV Magazine, HepC Magazine plus other health related print media.  We will be reporting and linking to the scientific community such as the CDC, HIV.GOV, Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic, and many others which will always be credited.  This includes new research into HIV related complications both nationally and abroad, and we will be providing links to these sites for your convenience. News briefs come to us from HIV support organizations as well as active political advocacy groups in the nation.  Politics and HIV related complications have been prevalent in the news lately; however, we will only connect to political news and links as it relates to HIV, HPV and Hepatitis C.

We will be updating FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) from time to time as new information develops, or if new questions are suggested. News articles will be rotated or removed occasionally as new events or updates occur.  Very relevant news will be preserved and installed on an accessible archive at the end of each of the above headings/links

It is our goal to bring you the most recent and most correct health information possible.  The foundations, research organizations, information magazines and Department of Health and Human Services publications will be linked to and/or credited for source material.

If technical problems should occur with page display, links to articles or other webpages, please contact Terry Frick, [email protected]  Please clearly describe the problem and on which header/page it was found.  Thanks.
