Today is World AIDS Day, and this year marks the 25th anniversary of Harris Health System’s Thomas Street Health Center, which meets the medical, psychological and social needs of Houstonians diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. Thomas Street was the nation’s first free-standing HIV/AIDS treatment facility.

On this edition of Houston Matters, we hear about the challenges of treating and preventing HIV/AIDS, from Thomas Street’s director, and about the challenges of living with it, from a patient diagnosed with HIV.

Also this hour: with the holiday season upon us it’s the time of year when many of us will host a food drive or raise funds for a worthy cause. We discuss the charitable giving habits of Houstonians, in the wake of a new report.

We also answer your questions about cold-weather gardening with Linda Gay of the Arbor Gate Nursery in Tomball, and break down what went right for the Texans in their rout Sunday of the Tennessee Titans, with CultureMap’s MK Bower.
