HIV/AIDS community discussion to be held in ABQ
A community discussion on HIV and AIDS, hosted by the White House Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP), will be held Friday at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque. The White House says there are 56,000 new cases of HIV infections every year. In order to stem the tide, President Barack Obama has three goals for his National HIV/AIDS Strategy: reducing HIV incidence, increasing access to care and optimizing health outcomes, and reducing HIV-related health disparities.
Included on the panel will be Jeffrey S. Crowley, director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy and Dr. Steve Jenison, the medical director of the New Mexico Department of Health’s Infectious Disease Bureau. The discussion will be moderated by Stella Martin of the New Mexico Community Planning and Action Group.
The event is open to the press and public, but those who want to attend must RSVP at https://www.cmpinc.net/ONAP.
