Can We Eradicate the Spread of HIV in NEO?

This year marks the 35th Anniversary of the AIDS epidemic in the United States. Treatment has come a long way since those scary days, but the disease isn't gone. In Ohio, a thousand people are likely to be infected with HIV this year, almost a third under the age of 24, many in their teens. Advocates are calling for a renewed push to eradicate the disease in Ohio. They say it CAN be done and we'll hear how, on the Sound of Ideas.
