Jackie Pappalardi and Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

The AIDS Institute is excited to announce the return of PrEP Aware Week, a public education campaign with activities across New York State, to be held October 25 31, 2020. Every health care provider, health care facility, local health department, community-based organization, social service agency, school or individual concerned about HIV is being asked to join us in working together so that people of all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities and abilities are aware of PrEP.

Please see the attached letter from Dr. Charles Gonzalez, Medical Director of the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute for more information.
