World AIDS Day

tammyWorld AIDS Day was December 1, 2016 — a global commemoration of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. We came together as a community, as a country and as a globe to show support for people living with HIV, and to honor those who we have lost from AIDS-related complications.

One of our own clients, for whom we express a great deal of pride, is Tammy Kinney. In December, she was featured in POZ Magazine’s Top 100 HIV/AIDS advocates: https://www.poz.com/article/2016-poz-100-jk Her advocacy over nearly 30 years is something to truly be admired.

For Tammy, for those who currently suffer and for those no longer in pain, Know Your Status!
