OSCC 2013 Presentation: Community HIV/AIDS Resource Exchange (CHARE) Project Goes Beyond: Capacity Building, Awareness, and Training through OpenSim Integration

1,313

Published on

PowerPoint presentation delivered by Sally S. Cherry, MT(ASCP) at the OpenSimulator Community Conference 2013. It was included in the Social & Communities track of the Conference.

Conference Session Description
The real life and virtual mission of Community HIV/AIDS Resource Exchange (CHARE Project) is to provide capacity building, technical assistance, training, and social media marketing to enhance the linkage and delivery of HIV/AIDS prevention, education and related services. The Kitely-based component of CHARE Project known as CHARE Village was established to increase the usability and application of OpenSim technology by AIDS service organizations and other public health providers regardless of physical location. As with the real life CHARE Project, the objectives of the virtual-based program are to educate service providers (as well as consumers); enhance the delivery of HIV/AIDS services and resources; expand the organization's outreach; establish collaborative partnerships; earn global recognition for the organization's programs; and encourage behavior change (recognizing AIDS as a chronic disease; not a death threat).

Presenter Bio
As a consultant, instructor, and former HIV/AIDS project manager, Sally S. Cherry, MT(ASCP) is interested in the integration of virtual worlds and other social media platforms within real life and virtual-based health and wellness capacity building projects. Ms. Cherry's professional experience and interest in laboratory science lead to a diverse public health career as a laboratory coordinator, international medical consultant, national laboratory instructor, HIV/AIDS project manager, and STD/STI lab consultant. The interest in technology and social media fuel her professional and personal mission to integrate OpenSim technology into real life public health projects as well as providing social media capacity building, training, and marketing.
