As part of WCLK's Fulton Focus program we were joined by Fulton County Health Department Official Veronica Hartwell, and Dazon Dixon Diallo, founder of Sister Love.  Sister Love was founded in Atlanta in 1989 and is a volunteer group of women interested in educating Atlanta, and especially communities of women, about AIDS prevention, self-help and safer sex techniques.
