Sex, Drugs, & Money

I gave a policy briefing at the 15th Texas HIV/STD Conference along with Randall Ellis, Government Relations Director for Legacy Community Health Services. Called "Sex, Drugs, & Money," the briefing included discussion of the cultural context for HIV/AIDS policy in Texas, resources for local advocates, and an outline of issues that we will (or may) see in the 80th Texas Legislature. While only about 10 people had preregistered for the session, closer to 50 showed up. I was most pleased by the attendance; unfortunately, we did not have enough handouts for everyone who was present.

As promised, I have now published my presentation on the Texas AIDS Network website as a PDF file. I used my version of "beyond bullets" to create my presentation in PowerPoint, using graphics and very few words on my slides, but writing extensive commentary in the notes. While the "notes" are not a script of what I had to say in the briefing, they do give the flavor of what we talked about.

My thanks to all who attended the session. I look forward to working with you in the coming months.
