Robert & Brady are thrilled to be speaking with Jason Alvin about his diagnosis and his daily FB LIVE show which captures him taking his HIV medication.
My name is Jason Alvin, and since my diagnosis with HIV in 2015, I have become a vocal advocate spreading the good news about recent HIV developments such as #PrEP and #UequalsU to friends family and strangers through facebook. I have been taking my HIV medication live on facebook every day for over 2 years. The community that has grown around the show has been a tremendous source of support through what for me has been a really difficult diagnosis. I am a registered nurse and worked on an inpatient psychiatric unit for 12 years. I am a mental health professional, but I am also a patient. I am married and have 2 sons that are 8 and 7 years old.
