      MON - 12/01: Current Events:
      Several programs want to draw attention to the fact that AIDS among Natives Americans and Alaskan Natives remains unchecked and is inadequately addressed. Two conferences are planned that are aimed at assisting tribes in meeting the needs of Native children and families. Diabetes and exercise are the focus of a conference that hopes to be proactive in diabetes management and all are invited. Also, a network primetime TV mini-series airing this month will highlight Native American legends and Native actors will be in character. These and other activities will be taking place around Indian Country in the last month of 2003.

      TUE - 12/02: World AIDS Day:
      The Human Immunodeficiency Virus, or HIV is the virus that causes the disease, Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, or AIDS. Health studies are showing that AIDS remains unchecked in minority communities. Not only do those with AIDS in minority communities have less resources available to them, but they also face being ostracized and disassociated from the rest of the community. Even if the appropriate treatments are available, they often times face death alone. On World AIDS Day, can society change its view of who AIDS patients are? Can their spirit heal in spite of their diseased body? Guests include Michael Bird, Executive Director, National Native American AIDS Prevention Center.
