October is Hispanic Heritage Month, and October 15th marks National Latino AIDS Awareness Day. Until There’s A Cure is proud to recognize this important awareness day, and we encourage you to take time to learn about how the Hispanic and Latino community in the US is responding to the threat of HIV/AIDS. The UTAC announcement of NLAAD is here; please let us know how you are helping to spread awareness of HIV/AIDS in your own community!
