CAMP Rehoboth Offers Variety in Fall Programs
At CAMP Rehoboth, the Health and Wellness programs cover more than HIV prevention, education & testing—they cover a full gamut of health programs to help the community live full and productive lives. Wellness programs focus on preventive care, improving socialization, and support. All Health and Wellness programs are organized by Salvatore Seeley; many require registration, many are free, and all are presented by thoughtful experts in their fields.
Here is a round-up of programs available through CAMP Rehoboth this Fall. For a day-by-day listing of programs sponsored by CAMP Rehoboth, either onsite or elsewhere, check out the CAMP Calendar on the website.
PrEP Education Comes to CAMP Rehoboth
In the past five years, medications with the generic title PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) have become one of the most highly effective ways of stopping the spread of HIV. It consists of one pill taken once a day—i.e., easy to use! PrEP is an effective prevention strategy for reducing HIV acquisition risk by 90-99% if taken as prescribed.
For this reason, CAMP Rehoboth is leading the way to provide coordinated services in Delaware for referrals and resources regarding PrEP. In September, CAMP Rehoboth hosted service providers from around the state who wanted to learn about PrEP and how to integrate screening, resources, and referrals into existing programs. The goal of this workshop was to educate service providers so community members who would benefit from PrEP would get the most accurate and up-to date information.
PrEP is recommended for men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, transgender men and women, and heterosexual adults who are at high risk for HIV infection.▼
