What is Impulse Group Orlando?

Impulse Group is an international organization on a mission to empower our generation by promoting education and awareness. With the support of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), we have been given an unprecedented platform to help accomplish our goals. Since chapter foundation in November 2014, Impulse Orlando has created strong partnerships with many local health resources, and has raised awareness with each of it's high-impact engagement events geared to the 18-30 MSM demographic throughout Orlando.

Why we do it

Florida ranks second in the nation among new HIV cases, and third when it comes to new AIDS cases. 1 in 4 new cases of HIV are among those ages 13-24. Orange County is third in the state in the number of HIV and AIDS cases. That is why we do it. Impulse Orlando is dedicated to empowering individuals to take charge of their sexual health in an effort to reduce these numbers.

Our team of hard-working and selfless individuals each donate their time and skills to further the Impulse Group mission.

#StartTheConvo


While talking about your sex practives and HIV status in the heat of the moment may seem like a boner killer, it is important to take a couple of minutes and discuss with your partner(s) about your sex practices, as well as theirs. Remember, HIV and other STI's can take weeks to produce visible symptoms, or even enough antibodies to produce a positive test result (HIV can take up to 4-6 weeks from exposure to test positive on a rapid test). However you protect yourself, is up to you, but it all starts with an open dialogue before it goes down.



#CondomsInTheCommunity
