An article made its way to my inbox this morning that grabbed my attention. It discussed the ability of television to educate the public on health issues. In particular, it discussed an episode of Grey’s Anatomy on which a pregnant HIV+ woman learns that with proper medication her baby has a 98% chance of being born without HIV. The study demonstrated that awareness of this fact increased by 46% among viewers who were interviewed. A little education can go a long way.
There is every reason to hope that HIV+ children who are growing up with good medical care and proper medications will be able to marry and give birth to healthy children. That is good news for many families around the world.
You can read the study and related articles HERE.
Thanks for stopping by.
