October 24, 2011
Cathedral City officials formally marked National Latino AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD) on Oct. 15 with a proclamation recognizing organizers of a testing and education event held at Walgreens Pharmacy, 33-975 Date Palm Drive.
"HIV and AIDS are valley-wide issues. That is why we felt so strongly about bringing the event to the west end of the valley," said Josie Diaz, Walgreens' community liaison, who attended along with Mayor Kathleen DeRosa, Assembly member V. Manuel Pérez, and officials from Bienestar Human Services Inc.
