The impact on African Americans suffering with HIV/ Aids is hardest on Tennessee communities. While they don't make up large portions of the population, they are being diagnosed at a disproportionate rate according to Stephen Emmert with planned parenthood... Improvements in medication means being diagnosed is no longer a death sentence. Earlier diagnosis means better odds of survival. Emmert says they are hoping to make it a part of normal exams for women. Women in Tennessee are one-fourth of those cases..... Emmert says everyone should be aware of the risk of contracting HIV/AIDS no matter race, gender, or geography. 76-hundred Tennesseans are currently diagnosed with AIDS. (CC)
