It is also an affirmation of the power of compassion and a demonstration that ordinary people can accomplish extraordinary things.
Founded in 2005, The Life Group LA provides education, empowerment and emotional support to persons infected and affected by HIV/AIDS that they may make informed choices regarding their healthcare and personal well being. Using a variety of methodologies such as peer support groups and the POZ Life Weekend Seminar, The Life Group LA creates educational and empowering experiences in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment.
Saddle up LA 2014 will be another ride to remember! It will honor not only those who have died of AIDS but will honor those of us who live on whether infected or affected by HIV.
