Today is DIS Recognition Day! Find out what being a DIS means to the winners of the DIS Scholarship Award for STD Engage!
DIS Recognition Day is a time to celebrate all that DIS do in the field of STD prevention. They are committed to halting the spread of disease and promoting health in their communities. As dedicated workers in the field, they use their passion and skills to engage with people to get them tested and treated for STDs, HIV, tuberculosis, and hepatitis. The word cloud above was created from the DIS Scholarship applications for STD Engage 2018, using words that describe qualities of DIS and what DIS do. Below you will find quotes from the application’s video submissions, where applicants answered, “What does being a DIS mean to you?”
Vishal Kinkhabwala – “Every patient is a unique individual and has their own story to tell. Bearing this in mind, every case is an opportunity to get to know someone and truly make a difference.”
Cherrite Peterson – “I love being a DIS because I can protect the community, improve lives, and promote healthy living.”
