Details on the new National HIV/AIDS Strategy will be presented by James Albino, Senior Program Manager in the White House Office of National AIDS Policy. There will be a discussion on how the first U.S. National HIV/AIDS Strategy will impact the Black communities in America.

Information about the importance of HIV testing will be discussed as well as ways to improve and expand HIV testing in Black communities.

Wyche, MBA, Regional Resource Consultant - Region III, US Department of Health and Human Services, Glenn Ellis, syndicated columnist National Newspaper Publisher’s Association and Jesse Milan Jr., Vice President of Altarum.

The event will take place tomorrow at the Parkway Central Library located at 1901 Vine Street (4th Floor, Skyline Room) Philadelphia, PA 19103. The event is free to the public and refreshments will be served.
