MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  A new report says the highest rate of HIV infection among homosexual men is highest in the American South, but Tennessee seems to be bucking that trend.

Researchers at Emory University in Atlanta recently compiled a study detailing rates of HIV infection down to the county level across the country. Study coauthor Dr. Jeremy Grey says Tennessee’s largest cities are doing relatively well.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (NELSON)  --  Two out of ten Tennessee teens are not being taught about HIV and AIDS, according to a recently released nationwide survey.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2011 survey shows that approximately 20% of Tennessee’s high school students are not being taught about AIDS in school.

Statistics also show that more than 17% of Tennessee’s high school students are sexually active.

Middle Tennessee State University senior Joshjuan Jones says his Memphis high school didn’t provide much sex education of any kind.
