Friday’s Morning Zone: Kids At Risk, Wy. Perspectives and New School Bullying

AIDS Tesing

Today’s Morning Zone is cocked full of great information and a MUST HEAR Radio!

7:07AM MST: KIDS-AT-RISK…Today, our guest panelists, Child Advocate, John Frentheway and licensed Professional Counselor, Renee’ Hanson join host Dave Chaffin to discuss a recent MedPage story that reports Americans between the ages of 13 and 24 accounted for more than a quarter of new HIV infections in 2010 — about 12,000 cases — but only a third of that age group had ever been tested for the virus, the CDC reported. “This is our future generation, and the bottom line is that every month, 1,000 youth are becoming infected with HIV,” said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the agency. The “shocking” data, reported in a Vital Signs article from Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, detail the prevalence, incidence, and risk factors of HIV among youths, Frieden said in a teleconference with reporters. One implication of the new incidence data is a growing future healthcare burden, Frieden said. Noting that the lifetime cost of care for a person with HIV is about $400,000, he said: “Every month we are accruing about $400 million of healthcare costs — and every year $5 billion — from preventable infections in youth.”

8:07AM MST: ‘Wyoming Perspectives’ – our latest series with Wyoming legislator Amy Edmonds and Economist Sven Larson that explores the many issues nationally and within the state that have important impacts on our lives here in The Cowboy State.

9:07AM MST: Still More School Bullying! Bullying Hurts founder, Marvin Nash is back with Dave and today they will be talking with outspoken long-time Cheyenne resident and former City Council member, Judy Case, to talk about yet another recent case of severe school bullying. Judy’s grandaughter was the victim! Why is this still going on and what, if anything, is the school district doing about it?
