The State Farm Seminar Area Information will host the “Your Body is Your Temple” seminar where participants come hear from medical professionals as they discuss the medical challenges women face and preventative measures that can be taken. This seminar promises to be educational and empowering, topics to include nutrition, physical fitness, stress management, heart health, diabetes, cancer and HIV/AIDS. DeVondia has been asked by CBS Power 98 FM studios to discuss being African American, HIV Positive and single. “When I was asked a chill went down my spine and I knew it was now time to let go one of my hidden fears accompanied by the diagnoses.” says Roseborough.
DeVondia was diagnosed in 2003 with HIV and later learned the diagnoses was AIDS due to a T-cell count of 19 associated with numerous AIDS-Related complications that almost ended her life. Today she speaks openly without shame and with boldness on the prevention of HIV and shares very candidly in a tactful manner the behaviors individuals display that once were a factor in her being labeled as an African American woman at 32 years of age with AIDS. DeVondia will also be in rotation in the Literary Café selling copies of her books Put it on Paper based on her life before HIV and after AIDS and Baptized N’ Warm Milk: My Last First Kiss based on temptations of the flesh.
