Question description

Prior to completing your discussion, read Chapter 4 in your textbook, watch the Annie Lennox:  Why I Am an HIV/AIDS Activist video, and review any relevant Instructor Guidance.  For this discussion, reference the information in the “Introduction to the Miller Family” document.  Mike Maldonado lost his companion of 10 years to AIDS. After being tested, Mike learned that he is HIV positive.  Examine the biological basis for social, psychological, and physical problems related to his diagnosis. Comment specifically on how they pertain to Mike’s psychological state.  Based on their cultural and traditional beliefs, as well as their concerns for his health, comment on how Mike’s family members might react to the news about this diagnosis.  What are some common thoughts, beliefs, biases, and fears that might be held by Mike, his family, friends, and his community as a result of their sociocultural experiences?  Integrating what you have learned from the readings and video, what information would you want the Miller family to have in order to understand and be supportive of Mike at this time?
