The Fulton County Department of Health Services and the CDC have a couple of experts lined up for an upcoming health session.
Past “Real Housewives of Atlanta” personality Dwight Eubanks will be joining them.
The event is called “Testing Makes Us Stronger,” an initiative to encourage black gay and bisexual men in Atlanta to be tested for HIV.
“Using bold messaging and iconic, diverse images of black gay and bisexual men, the campaign highlights the power and importance of knowing your HIV status,” organizers said in a statement.
(So Eubanks is bold and iconic?)
The event begins at 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Auburn Avenue Research Library, 101 Auburn Ave.
The non reality show panelists include Dr. Kevin Fenton, director of the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention at the CDC; and Dr. Patrice A. Harris, director of Fulton County Health Services.
Eubanks hasn’t been seen on the “Real Housewives” lately but has appeared in past episodes as a hairdresser and confidante.
