Healthy Man of the Month – April 2014
21st Century HIV Activist is Healthy Man of the Month
Patrick Ingram describes himself as a young gay black man who was diagnosed with HIV in 2011.
For me 2014 is all about maintaining and enhancing my health. I am talking about the physical and mental. For me physically it is about trying my best to eat nutritious foods (while still allowing room for treats), being physically active through athletics or just getting away from the television, and being more conscious of my general health and wellness.
He says that ‘I definitely do not limit myself to cheat days or have unrealistic expectations and patience.’
Patrick works as the Testing Coordinator at The Fredericksburg Area HIV AIDS Support Services (FAHASS). He is also in school to gain his degree in Public Health. He currently promotes HIV testing and education.
Patrick has also rededicated his life to working alongside like minded people with a goal of ending AIDS for good, getting new HIV infections down to zero, and creating a cure/vaccine for HIV. Mr. Ingram has moderated a panel discussion on Story Telling and HIV at The US Conference on AIDS 2013 in New Orleans, and visited Portland, Oregon during Cascade AIDS Projects’ World AIDS Day events (to include a panel discussion on past and present HIV Activism).
He is currently on The National Minority AIDS Council’s HIV Leadership Working Group for their Health Literacy and Wellness Initiative, which allows him to share and voice his thoughts and opinions that benefit people living with HIV.
Patrick is on The Youth Advisory Committee for NMAC’s Youth Initiative to End HIV/AIDS in America.
