Episode 5: Stigma Stings!

HIV stigma can be more harmful than the disease itself. Is it possible to eradicate this social menace or is it here to stay? Tune in to find out as host James Watson chats with his guests about the impact of HIV stigma and how community-based research is making strides to weaken its grip.

First up, James chats with Dr. Sean Rourke, a Clinical Neuropsychologist and Scientist at the Centre for Urban Health Solutions of St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, about the Canadian HIV Stigma Index research study. He then sits down with  Brittany Cameron, a powerful champion in the fight against HIV stigma, an HIV Positive mother of three, an LGBTQ ally, and Human Rights Activist.
