Last Friday, PresidentialStyleOnline attended a Live4R.E.D. event at the Reggae Hut in Downtown, Wilmington, N.C. The Live4R.E.D.- Research, Educate and Dream is a HIV/AIDS Non-Profit Organization founded by Ms. Latesha Sarley Sidbury.
Latesha Sarley Sidbury, founder of this great organization is dedicated to reaching as many individuals as possible via awareness on this deadly and spreading disease. According to UnicefUSA.org, 2.1 million adolescents ( 10-19 years) were living with HIV in 2013. This epidemic is real; and it is very important to educate and spread the word on abstinence and/or safe sex because 1 out of 6 people do not know their HIV status.

CARIBBEAN AMERICAN HIV/AIDS DAY
HIV infection has had a demoralizing impact on the Caribbean Diaspora and the Caribbean-American communities throughout the United States. Caribbean-American communities reveal significant health disparities, and have identified HIV/AIDS and inadequate access to health care as major health issues in this population.
