Panel Discussion

METH: HITTING ROCK BOTTOM
1:30PM –2:30PM SAT, SEPT 30 SWFC

This panel will focus on the growing trend of PNP (party n play) in the gay community, as well as the rise of HIV + diagnosis due to the increasing usage of meth and unsafe sex. The use of meth amongst gay men has become staggering in recent years, and the number of users continue to rise. This panel will address the consequences and shed some light on treatment and the challenges of coming “clean”. The film METH will screen following the panel.

Panelists include: Phillip Fuity: Founder (Harm reduction for the Department of Health for the state of New Mexico), Dominick Zurlo (Healthcare for the Homeless), Jimmy Schrock (Men’s Health project coordinator). Other panelists to be announced. Panel and film screening are free.
This panel is being sponsored by New Mexico AIDS Services
