Congratulations to the people over at AIDS Foundation Houston. They’re receiving a major honor in Washington DC. Here’s the information the Insite received from the organization that works to bring AIDS awareness to the front lines in Houston:

I’m thrilled to announce AIDS Foundation Houston will be honored at the upcoming International AIDS Conference in Washington DC next week. Our event- in partnership with the City of Houston and the Department of Health and Human Services – will be recognized as the largest HIV testing event in the nation.

This year our goal is to test 8,000 people during the two months leading up to the HIP HOP concert on August 10th. With HIV infections in the South increasing, Houston is a leader in the fight against new infections in the African- American community.
