You asked for more about me...

A VERY intelligent young lady wrote the following bio for me... I hope you enjoy her work as much as I do!

Joseph Thornton Grieb, directs the efforts of the AIDS Ministry Network of the Disciples Home Missions.
‘Jody’ is co-founder of Wabash Valley People Attempting To Help, Inc. a community based organization in Terre Haute, Indiana that provides prevention education and testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections and support and advocacy for those living with and affected by those diseases. Jody works extensively with the Indiana State Department of Health, the National Institutes of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in evaluating current effective behavioral interventions in the HIV arena.

He is a passionate advocate for HIV/AIDS/STI awareness, LGBTI health and wellness, and drug use and addictions education. He travels extensively sharing a message of hope and spiritual renewal. A survivor of drug addiction and HIV, Jody brings his personal experiences to help develop intervention and harm reduction programs. His combination of personal narrative and community dialogue brings light to a set of challenging social and spiritual topics.

Jody continues his education at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in western Indiana with plans to enter Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis in 2011. Jody, his partner Roland and their daughter Delena live in Terre Haute, Indiana where they are very involved members in Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
