More Deaths from AIDS

The Remember Their Names memorial website, http://www.deafaids.info/remember/their_names.html has recently updated their list, adding names of Deaf community members who died of AIDS in 2007.

25 new names were added

23 men, 2 women

17 United States
6 Canada
1 Guam
1 United Kingdom

May they rest in peace and may we find new ways to spread the message about the dangers of HIV/AIDS

I just happened across your blog, and am so glad I did. This intersection of deafness and health issues is so vital, and particularly for education and accessibility with regard to subjects like HIV/AIDS.

In fact, I have just added an article to my site last week about how HIV can result in hearing loss and deafness - not something we hear too much about, either.

I will be bookmarking your site for future reference - thanks again for your work.

Regards
