InFocus continues to spotlight the challenges faced by Southern Illinoisans living with HIV/AIDS. In this segment, we meet AIDS survivor Scott Thorn, a former pastor who returned to Southern Illinois after contracting the disease so he could be close to his family and to raise his son. Now a consumer representative with the Southern Illinois HIV CARE Consortium, Thorn shares his story about dealing with the social stigma of HIV/AIDS and how he is trying to build a normal life for himself and his son while managing the realities of living with the disease.
