One of the messages we have for public health leaders, at the local level, at the national level, congressionally, across the board -- even within our faith communities -- is that in public health one of the tools we have available to us are digital tools. We know our target audience is listening to each other, is engaging on social media tools and devices, on which we are not always putting our information.

It's not necessarily about how to find an HIV test, how to learn more about PrEP; it can also be: How can I find a hospital that I'll feel comfortable in? So across the board, one of the number one things we need to do in today's digital world is be digital-ready.
