Watchful Eye and its Community Partner Brookdale University Hospital co-sponsored a youth and seniors World AIDS Day Kick-Off Forum. The theme for the day “Together We Can Make A Difference”. The event was attended by local Brownsville and East New York Middle School Students and local Seniors. It was important to have an event geared to these two integral populations because of the high rates of newly infected individuals. Youth from Waverly Sound Steel Band performed a selection of songs to keep the crowd entertained throughout the program. Speakers included: Mark E. Toney, CEO Brookdale University Hospital, Dr. Andre Brutus, Physician at Brookdale Hospital and Dee Bailey, Watchful Eye Founder. Gilead Pharmaceutical Company also gave an informative presentation about PrEP and PEP. There was a great moment of Q&A where attendees were able to share their concerns about HIV/AIDS stigma and infection rates. Free Testing was provided by Brookdale Hospital all day. Tabling was also done by local testing and community organizations.
