Women’s Support Group

The Women’s HIV support group is for HIV positive women. The group meets the first Monday of every month. The meeting is structured to address anyone’s issues in a caring and supportive environment. This group is about  women who often care for others and tend to neglect themselves, not just about being HIV positive.

Dinner is served at 6:00pm and the meeting starts at 6:30pm and goes for about an hour.  The discussion is open for any topics and from time to time a speaker may be brought in. The group also addresses HIV adherence, medications, improvements in care, etc.

Transportation is available. If you are interested in participating please call Wayne at Samaritan Ministries at (865) 450-1000 x827.
