Tony Wafford -Member: CEO of I Choose Life Health and Wellness Center
"AIDS is a cold, hard pandemic - a cannon, barreling throughout the African American community in record numbers. Thus, it mandates straightforward, honest dialogue about who can stop it and how. said Tony Wafford. Mr. Wafford, President and CEO of I Choose Life Health and Wellness Center (ICL) an organization founded to address heath disparities in the Black community. He works tirelessly in partnership with the National Action Network and its entire membership to educate them on health literacy, increase access to health screenings, along with HIV testing and education, as he does with many other collaborative partners. One of Mr. Wafford's major accomplishments is his ability to address HIV/AIDS in the African American community from a culturally competent perspective. Because of his unique approach, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) awarded I Choose Life Health and Wellness Center a five year grant entitled Act Against AIDS Leadership Initiative. Tony has created some of the most effective and unique HIV/AIDS campaigns in his more than ten years of working in this area. He teamed up with Al Hayman Productions to create the "Fighting HIV through R&B" testing campaign;which donated 2 million dollars in free concert tickets to anyone who tested. This effort yielded over 30,000 people, in twenty-four states, in sixty-six cites to be tested for HIV. Tony also created the "Test One Million" initiative. This initiative is being modeled by HIV organizations all over the country in an effort to test one million African Americans for HIV. "Takin It to the Street," is a projectthat Tony created along with Congresswoman Maxine Waters and a core group of volunteers to distributed condoms and information about HIV to barber shops, beauty salons and shoe repair shops all over South Central Los Angeles. Tony convened and hosted the largest summit addressing HIV/AIDS in the Black community. said Mr. Wafford.
