Support the Denver Principles Project


Welcome to another blog entry. We are gearing up for our first Women's minority HIV conference here in Jacksonville. So it is a very busy week getting the final details in place.

I am still doing my workouts and protein shakes. I always try to start out my day on a positive that way. Working out also helps me with any leftover stress from earlier.

I have spoken before about the Denver Principles Project. I would like to take the time to thank all the organizations nationwide who have signed on with Dab the AIDS Bear Project to back the initiative.
