This episode features a conversation with diverse representatives on the federal Ending the Epidemic Initiative. We will discuss how the EHE funds are being used for community engagement throughout the named EHE regions, what community engagement innovations have emerged during this time, and where the work to reach key communities still remains.
Our special guests are:
Commander John Oguntomilade (BDS, MPH, PhD) PACE Director of Region IV. Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, HHS.
Halenia Crews, Deputy Director at PEAS Inc.
Genevieve Barrow, Assistant Director of HIV Prevention at Balltimore City Health Department.
What’s at stake with the upcoming election as it relates to HIV?
Last month ANEA sat down with staffers from the Biden campaign to detail our desires for any president going into 2021. (ANEA requested a meeting with the incumbent president’s team to no avail.)
Hear about that conversation and how COVID-19, the Black Lives Matter uprisings, and the recent uptake in violence against migrants is changing the political dialogue and response to HIV. And more!
Featuring special guests:
Aryah Lester, Deputy Director at Transgender Strategy Center
Marco Castro-Bojorquez, Co-Chair for HIV Racial Justice Now
Elizabeth Lovinger, Senior Government Relations and Policy Officer for Treatment Action Group (TAG)
