Today: Swishahouse Hip Hop Health & Wellness Workshop

It's World AIDS Day, and although you don't hear near as much about it these days, the disease is still very much with us. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, in 2006 - the most recent year for which statistics are available - Harris County had the state's most new HIV/AIDS cases reported with 1,022, almost 300 more than second-place Dallas County.

Today, Swishahouse Records and the Changing Communities Movement Foundation are sponsoring another wellness workshop, with free HIV/STD testing and counseling courtesy of Planned Parenthood, at the Alief Community Center (11903 Bellaire Blvd) from 3-7 p.m. To lighten the mood a touch, there will be games, prizes, freestyle rap contests and, for a $5 donation, the chance to submit your demo to possibly win a Swishahouse record deal. - Chris Gray
