Students Teaching AIDS to Students (STATS)


STATS is a medical student organization committed to teaching local teens the facts about HIV/AIDS, dispelling common misconceptions and promoting safer behavior.

We travel to middle and high school classrooms in southeastern Michigan and give interactive presentations about HIV/AIDS. Our members share information ranging from what the HIV virus is and how it is transmitted to resources for free and anonymous testing and progress in the quest toward an HIV vaccine. We have training sessions twice a year with representatives from the HIV/AIDS Resource Center (HARC) in Ypsilanti. Members may give as few or as many presentations as they would like.
