Women & HIV focus of April 25th GTZ-SF Consortium Meeting

Thanks to all who came out and engaged with us in conversation about what we as individuals and collectively as GTZ can do to better serve and support women in all our diversity.

We had an opportunity to hear from and talk with Dr. Grant Colfax, the new Director of Public Health. Ande Stone from the SF AIDS Foundation presented informative policy updates on what’s happening on the local and state levels including budget advocacy, supervised injection facilities, SB-159 (pharmacy furnished PrEP/PEP) and the #EndtheEpidemics Campaign. Lori Thoemmes, from GTZ Steering and AHP, shared with the Consortium ways to get involved in spreading the word about GTZ at this year’s SF Pride Parade in June and AIDS Walk in July.  Email Courtney (courtney.liebi@ucsf.edu) if you’d like more details!

Great thanks to Cecilia Chung & Tracey Packer for co-facilitating this important conversation on cis and transgender women & HIV in SF and to our esteemed presenters and panelists – Erin Wilson, Elise Riley, Breonna Mccree, DK Haas and Clarissa Ospina-Norvell.

We’d like to thank those who helped with sign-in, room set up/break down, announcements, meeting recording and time keeping – Diane Jones, Dawn Evinger, Mercedes Azcarate, Rebecca Rees, Hyman Scott, Jessie Murphy, Lori Thoemmes, Tracey Packer, and Thomas Knoble.
