CDC's National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention, Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention will sponsor a satellite broadcast, "Effective Behavioral Interventions for HIV Prevention," on Thursday, May 23, 2002, from 2--4 p.m. EST.

Interviews and tours with staff and clients implementing these interventions in communities of color will be shown. Researchers will comment on the core elements of each intervention.
