The Ryan White Wellness Center


On #WorldAidsDay, the MUSC James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for their new dental clinic at The Ryan White Wellness Center.
This week The Ryan White Wellness Center launched Roper St. Francis Healthcare’s first fully operational dental clinic. The new suite has three state-of-the art treatment rooms and is located with Ryan White’s medical clinic and eyecare clinic. The dental program will be available to Ryan White patients and those under or uninsured patients with head and neck cancer.
Thank you to the The Ryan White Wellness Center for donating strollers this weekend. They both went to families who received them just in time to fill a need. And they were able to make additional connections for other need resources. #thankyou. #communityconnection #northcharleston #summerville #pertners #diaperneed #fillingthegap #blessings #basicneeds
Dr. Toby Fugate and our teammates at The Ryan White Wellness Center stand with Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg today on National HIV Testing Day, encouraging our friends and neighbors to get tested, know their status, and get linked to care and treatment. Go here for more info:

Today's Black History Month Icon is South Carolina's own Dizzy Gillespie.

Dizzy Gillespie - Born in 1917, John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie grew up in Cheraw. He taught himself to play trumpet at age 12 and began recording at the age of 20. From his early years with Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington, Gillespie was known for his adventurous trumpet playing. He played a major role in the rise of bebop and modern jazz.


We just couldn’t help but share this super cool fact friends! It’s palindrome week!!!!


It’s important to be kind to everyone you meet…everywhere and everyday! But it’s even MORE important when there is a special day dedicated to being kind!

So Happy Random Acts of Kindness Day!

National Random Acts of Kindness is celebrated every February 17. It first originated in 1995 in Denver, Colorado and in 2004, spread to New Zealand. The idea behind this celebration is to make the world a little brighter and better through little and simple kind gestures, words and actions.


Ever Rachel knew that condoms were only 97 percent off effective! Which is why it’s super important to use them correctly in combination with other safe sex practices!
#nationalcondomweek #friends #rossandrachel


As National Condom week continues…we can’t help but remember that even Dorothy Zbornak from The Golden Girls knew that condoms are 98 percent effective (when used correctly) at preventing pregnancy, sti’s and HIV!

So today and every day… shout from the rooftops… CONDOMS CONDOMS CONDOMS!


First… a very Happy ❤️ Day to everyone from the team at The Wellness Center!

But did you know that Valentine’s Day this week marks the beginning of National Condom Week!!!! That’s right! For the rest of the week join us for all things condoms!


Our celebration of Black History Month continues with another SC resident....

Mamie "Peanut" Johnson - Born in 1935, this Ridgeway native loved baseball. However, because she was African American, she was not allowed to be part of the sport's women's league. Luckily, a scout for the all-male Negro League saw her throw and quickly signed her to the Indianapolis Clowns, where she pitched three seasons. At one of her early games, an opponent is said to have shouted, "What makes you think you can strike a batter out? Why, you aren't any larger than a peanut!" She struck him out in three pitches and the nickname stuck!

"Angel in Twilight" Maude Callen -- Nurse-Midwife 02/08/2022

"Angel in Twilight" Maude Callen -- Nurse-Midwife

A local to celebrate during #BlackHistoryMonth

"Angel in Twilight" Maude Callen -- Nurse-Midwife This episode is about Maude Callen (1898 -- 1990), a Nurse-Midwife, who singlehandedly brought health care to rural Pineville, S.C. and the surrounding area ...


It’s been over a month since the world lost Betty White… seeing so many tributes to her is heartwarming. Let’s all take a moment though and reflect on an episode that Rose… and the other Golden Girls tackle the topic of HIV.

In 1990, in an episode titled "72
Hours", The Golden Girls became one of the first sitcoms to even mention the AIDS crisis.In this episode, Rose Nylund is told that during a procedure to have her gallbladder removed, she may have been exposed to HIV via a blood transfusion.
She is tested for HIV, and must wait an agonizing 72 hours for the test results.
The episode aired during a time when AIDS stigma and misinformation was rife - in the same year, a study of US doctors found that less that a quarter believed they should be legally required to treat
patients with HIV. Many people still believed that HIV and AIDS were
"gay diseases" that only affected
queer men.
But The Golden Girls used the sitcom to tackle this misinformation, showing viewers that anyone couldbe affected by AIDS, not just the LGBT+ community.


The first National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) was marked in 1999 as a grassroots-education effort to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS prevention, care, and treatment in communities of color.

Regardless of the color of your skin it’s important to know your HIV status! Stop by The Wellness Center to get tested of visit to find a testing location nearest you!


According to the American Heart Association's 2022 Heart Disease & Stroke Statistical Update, cardiovascular disease remains the greatest health threat for women. ... Wearing red on National Wear Red Day, Friday, February 4, 2022, to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease.

So rock some red today to help raise awareness! #goredforwomen


Today, in our month long celebration of Black History Month, we are featuring Etta Jones, a South Carolina native.

Etta Jones-Winning a talent show as a teenager set this Aiken native's career in motion! From the early 1940s straight through the 1990s, Etta recorded jazz hits and performed live in nightclubs, partnering with nearly all the Big Band greats. In 1960, her album Don't Go to Strangers went gold. Her last album, Etta Jones Sings Lady Day, was released on October 16, 2001, the day she died.
