Party With a Purpose: World AIDS Day House Party is being hosted by the Society of Young Black Public Health Professionals (SYBPHP) at Tulane University’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine (TUSPHTM) in New Orleans, Louisiana. This organization is made up of people like Petera and Brandon, who worked with St. Vincent’s Center for Handicapped Children in Haiti, and are both active members of (SYBPHP). The organization’s diverse  group of both current students and alumni are committed to increasing awareness to the public health issues that disproportionately affect members of the local and national African-American community and other communities of color and strives to foster a supportive networking environment for students and alumni of TUSPHTM.

This month the organization is playing host to an event that allows the opportunity for people in New Orleans to fight against the spread of HIV/AIDS. So it is only fitting that they celebrate the lives lost to this pandemic, while educating those most at risk, and raising money for organizations that champion a never ending battle. Society of Young Black Public Health Professionals at Tulane University, humbly invite you to celebrate in their house party themed Party With a Purpose. The event is +18 for admission, 21 to drink. Bring your STATE ID for entrance. Sponsered by NO/AIDS Task Force CHAT Program and the Clover Up Club. Hosted by The Big T Foundation, The Society, and Tulane University SPH&TM’s Student Government Association.

All proceeds go to the NO/AIDS Task Force CHAT Program. CHAT (Curbing HIV/AIDS Transmission among at-risk youth), a peer-to-peer safer sex, HIV prevention program is the newest addition to the Prevention Department. A referral based program, CHAT addresses the increased rate of HIV among African-American youth between the ages of 15-22, that are faced with challenges such as coming out of the juvenile justice system, homelessness, and addiction.

So if you’re free this evening, feel free to stop by and show your support.
