Peer Group Training

The training included information on how Anti Retro Viral (ARV) medications affect the body and how they interrupt the replication process. The information was very technical, but the CAM staff were able to explain the process in simple terms so that everybody had a better understanding.

CAM staff decided to also provide training and insight to the HIV positive group that they care for in a very practical way. The training was on how to read and interpret the blood work that the group receives when they go to the doctor for testing. There is a lot of technical information that doesn't quite get explained to these people by their doctors.

Everybody was encouraged to ask questions and the CAM staff created a fun and relaxed learning environment.
