Rhode Island Governor to Stress Importance of HIV Testing
September 19, 2011
Gov. Lincoln Chafee (I) will use a meeting today with Thomas Bertrand, executive director of the AIDS Project Rhode Island, to discuss the importance of being tested for HIV. The governor also will encourage Rhode Islanders to take part in the annual AIDS Walk for Life on Oct. 2. The fundraiser for APRI begins and ends on the Statehouse lawn. First lady Stephanie Chafee was one of the first nurses in the state to work exclusively with AIDS patients. For more on the walk, visit www.aidsprojectri.org/save-the-date-walk-for-life.
