Ryan White Town Halls Hit NYC

Some 50 people with HIV/AIDS, and AIDS service providers gathered at Gay Men's Health Crisis's Chelsea headquarters Tuesday for a "Ryan White Reauthorization Town Hall" to share the problems with AIDS care that they face in New York City.

Tuesday's forum, cosponsored by GMHC and the New York AIDS Coalition, is part of a nationwide series of meetings held in anticipation of the 2009 Ryan White Reauthorization. The last reauthorization's weigh-in, in 2005, was heavy on lobbyists and light on recipients of AIDS services.

Housing Works can now include the tri-county region of Sacramento, El Dorado & Placer for areas that have held a Ryan White Town Hall Meeting! On August 7, 2008, 12 members of the HIV Community of these areas gathered to contribute our input as 'consumers' of Ryan White-funded services - the meeting was lively, constructive and enjoyed by all! Many thanks to Christine Campbell of Housing Works for encouraging me to organize this important opportunity in Northern California!! :)
