In this episode, Joseph Ward interviewed Mr. Shawn Kreuger.
Since my birth in Los Angeles County, California in 1988, I have been living with HIV. I have been on ARVs my whole life and have witnessed and experienced the evolution of treatment from AZT to single tablet regimens. Since my family told me of my status, I have been learning about and educating on HIV. Recently I got married to the love of my life, enjoying life together as a magnetic couple, and I now work in public health as an HIV/STD Health Educator. I have experience working as a linkage-to-care coordinator and performing HIV outreach and testing. I not only educate on HIV and STDs, but sexual health in general: everything from dental dams to dildos. I have devoted much of my life to both HIV education and advocacy, doing all I can to promote healthy relationships for people living with HIV: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Outside of my work and my status, I am a spouse, a gamer, and a karaoke enthusiast.
Joseph Ward is the Outreach Specialist/Health Educator for the Ryan White Program with Neighborhood Medical Center.
