Officials asking Bronx community to take part in HIV vaccine trials
Members of the Latino Commission on AIDS and elected officials gathered at City Hall to urge the Bronx community to become involved in HIV vaccine trials.
Officials stressed the importance of HIV vaccine research especially within the Latino community. They are looking for volunteers to help find an effective vaccine for the disease.
One volunteer says the research is important. She says she is tired of children losing parents to HIV.
Those participating in the trial say being involved is a commitment, but say it is the only way to come close to finding a cure for AIDS.
