White House to Host AIDS Town Hall Meeting November 20 in Fort Lauderdale

FT. LAUDERDALE – The White House Office of National AIDS Policy will host a town hall meeting at Dillard High School, 2501 N.W. 11 Street, Fort Lauderdale on Friday, November 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. This is one of 14 Town Hall Forums being held across the country, including Puerto Rico. The Broward County Community Partnerships Division is coordinating the event.

The purpose of this meeting is to receive input from the South Florida community as part of the development of the nation’s first National HIV/AIDS Strategy to end HIV/AIDS. These community discussion forums will provide opportunities for individual residents to dialogue and provide White House staff and other policy makers with recommendations for achieving President Barak Obama’s three goals for the National HIV/AIDS Strategy:

• Reducing HIV incidence
• Increasing access to care and optimizing health outcomes
• Reducing HIV-related health disparities

Participants will have 1 minute and 30 seconds to share their recommendations. To help prepare for the community forum, participants are encouraged to download worksheets on the National HIV/AIDS Strategy at www.champnetwork.org.

On-line registration is encouraged at www.cmpinc.net/onap.
