The Ryan White, PHS barbecue blowout was a huge success. Even though we were under intense pressure and had limited time, we pulled together an event that had an immense impact on our participants and brought together the community we’ve created here at LESHRC. The February 28th barbecue resulted in participants reconnecting with our staff, many for the first time because of all the new faces around here at LESHRC.
Over 150 HIV tests were conducted in February, the bulk of them in the days leading up to and including the barbecue. This event also gave us an opportunity to collect participant data on quality assurance and quality improvement and we hope to compile and report back on our findings very soon, so stay tuned for that.
WOW what a week!
