As part of a summer series of listening sessions around the country, the White House Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP) has announced that it will be hosting two sessions in the Bay area later this month. The listening sessions will focus on local implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) and the HIV Care Continuum Initiative. Mr. Douglas Brooks, ONAP’s newly appointed director, will lead both listening sessions, which will take place as follows:
- Oakland, CA–Tuesday, June 24, 2014 (4:00 PM to 7:00 PM)
Oakland City Hall Council Chambers – Corner of 12th and Broadway, Oakland, CA 94612
- San Francisco, CA–Thursday, June 26, 2014 (3:00 PM to 6:00 PM)
UC Hastings College of the Law – Louis B Mayer Lounge – 198 McAllister Street, San Francisco, CA 94102
Use this link to register for either of these listening sessions.
The purpose of the listening sessions is to better understand local and state level efforts related to the implementation of the NHAS, including discussion about how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is helping advance the Strategy. The meetings are open to the public with the goal of engaging many stakeholders about the innovations, successes, and challenges being experienced at the state and local levels. Pre-registration is requested so that organizers know how many attendees to expect. To RSVP, please visit: https://www.cmpinc.net/onap .
