POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Onstream Media Corporation , a leading webcast services provider, announced today it will provide webcasting services in support of the 2nd Annual World AIDS day. On November 30th and December 1st, Onstream Media will webcast live video programming of events being held by TeenAIDS-PeerCorps Inc. in conjunction with the worldwide observance of World AIDS Day.
Over the two-day period, youth in the U.S. and worldwide will be involved in the second live webcast for teens about AIDS in 14 major languages and over 65 nations. The webcasts, which will emanate from the Fay Club in Fitchburg, MA and Harvard University, can be accessed at http://www.teenaids.org . Worldwide reports from 'the field' will be publicized during the webcasts so that teens can mutually share their volunteer efforts globally.
"Last year, we at TeenAIDS broke major ground by being the first youth- oriented organization to webcast AIDS events worldwide. With Onstream Media's continued support, our goal is to reach out to even more teens this year, encouraging them to learn facts about HIV/AIDS prevention," said Dr. John B. Chittick, Ed.D., executive director of TeenAIDS-PeerCorps Inc., a charitable organization staffed by volunteers. "Dr. John" (as he is known to youth) embarked on the first-ever, global AIDS prevention walk in 1999 and has trained teens in 23 states and 76 countries on all six continents.
"We are honored to have once again been chosen to provide our global webcasting infrastructure and services to take the TeenAIDS' message to a world-wide audience," said Randy Selman, president and Chief Executive Officer of Onstream Media. "We applaud the efforts of Dr. Chittick and his team of volunteers in their mission to educate the teenage youth about such a critically important health concern."
