On behalf of Karen Legato, Executive Director of FAN FREE CLINIC (FFC), the FFC staff and board, I am writing to thank you for the Urban Views Weekly cover story on November 30: “(9 min. 30 sec.) World AIDS Day.”
Camisha Jones did a wonderful and thorough job writing a thought-provoking piece about RVA Remembers 2011and FFC’s goal to put HIV/AIDS back on Richmond’s radar.
Please know how much all of us at FAN FREE CLINIC appreciate such civic-minded, positive reporting.
HIV/AIDS is a critical health issue for Richmond–especially in the African American community. Urban Views Weekly helped register HIV/AIDS in Richmond’s awareness in a bold way.
Such renewed awareness supports the education which begets prevention and, hopefully, brings an end to the stigma that so often divides people around this disease.
