Peace Fund Radio #91

Peace Fund Operations Officer Beverly Shihara joins Adrian Paul in the LA Talk Radio studios today — first with an update on the easy ways to keep kids safe from the Enterovirus D68 outbreak currently affecting more than 1,000 children across 10 Midwestern states, and then for a deeper discussion about the global epidemic of HIV/AIDS among children. Learn the facts, the causes, the relationship between HIV/AIDS and poverty, and how organizations such as AIDS United and Mustard Seed Communities are leading the global battles for HIV/AIDS education and eradication.

And in our Hero of the Week segment, I remember how early AIDS victim Ryan White lives on through the Ryan White CARE Act and highlight several Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leaders whose efforts over the years have brought awareness and assistance to HIV/AIDS hotspots around the globe: Peggy Otengo, Sebastian Roberts, Consolée Nyiragirinka, and Bilaal Rajan. We also share a special video from Disney highlighting one of our previous Heroes, Judy Adams from Dimes for Down Syndrome.

As always, I can’t believe I get to do this. You can download it here or hear it in our archive here.
