· Wedge Program. The Wedge Program sends HIV+ people (I have done this) out to talk to young students in school. I enjoyed speaking to students and received many letters from these students sharing their thoughts about HIV and AIDS with me.
· At local CAB meetings, have a raffle drawing for $50 worth of certificates (Safeway, Wendy's, etc.). This may encourage women to see if it is worth a try.
· At local health fairs in major cities, we should have booths to introduce women to WIHS and give them enrollment and study information.
· Reach out to women who do not speak English with brochures written in Chinese, Vietnamese, Spanish, etc.
· Bring in female children of current study participants.
Another important topic we talked about was making the autopsy card for the current WIHS study. Copies of living wills should be made and given to women during their next visit and the interviewers should talk to us about this issue. A draft of the autopsy card was given to me and I will pass it onto Paula to put in future issues of the newsletter.
