Family First Health’s Caring Together Program hosts remembrance for World AIDS Day
1 to 3 p.m.
Monday, Dec. 1
Family First Health’s Caring Together Program will present a program in support of World AIDS Day on Monday, Dec. 1. Guest speakers will share their stories, reflections and remembrances, and program staff will share current HIV/AIDS stats and facts.
More than 1.2 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV infection, and almost 1 in 7 are unaware of their infection. The Caring Together Program, a collaborative partnership between Family First Health and WellSpan Health, provides a seamless system of coordinated, high-quality care for people who are HIV positive so they can easily access the services they need.
The 2014 theme for World AIDS Day is Focus, Partner, Achieve: An AIDS-free Generation. Monday’s program is an open-door event and guests are free to come and go as needed. Light refreshments will be provided.
Family First Health, Third Floor Community Room
116 S. George St., York PA 17401
As of March 2014, the Caring Together Program program included 589 HIV positive individuals. Rapid HIV screening has been integrated into routine medical visits at all Family First Health locations.
