Ms. LaPointe has served on numerous national and local HIV/AIDS-related boards and committees. These include AIDS Legal Referral Panel, the Community Advisory Board of the AIDS Clinical Research Center at the UCSF, the Board of Directors of Healing Alternatives Foundation in San Francisco, and the National Operations Committee and National Executive Committee of Community-Based AIDS Clinical Trials Network sponsored by amfAR.
"It has been nearly twenty years since the first AIDS cases were reported in the US, and the growing impact of HIV and AIDS worldwide is staggering," notes Ms. LaPointe. "Since its inception in 1985, Project Inform has provided inspiration and hope to people living with HIV/AIDS, their healthcare and service providers, and their families and friends. At this important juncture, as we all re-double our efforts, I am honored to join an organization at the forefront of HIV/AIDS treatment information and advocacy."
