Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This book presents a compilation of essays and speeches by the author and other contributors on various issues surrounding HIV/AIDS in the African American community. Dr. Foster draws on her extensive community based and advocacy work in preventive medicine/public health and her passion in preventing HIV/AIDS in the African American community, both in urban and rural communities. Additionally, the author presents factual educational material on HIV/AIDS as well as discussion questions to encourage more in-depth thought and discussion on sensitive subject matter. She challenges the reader to consider the question, “Is there a Balm for HIV/AIDS in Black America?” It is hoped that after reading the book, the reader is able to proclaim, “Yes” because I am part of the healing that must take place in the community.
