White House Office of National AIDS Policy announces series of ‘Listening Sessions’

Douglas Brooks

The White House Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP) has announced that it will host a series of regional listening sessions this summer on the implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS). Mr. Douglas Brooks, ONAP’s newly appointed director, will lead the listening sessions, which will be part of a visit to each community that will include site visits to organizations engaged in the community’s efforts to improve outcomes along the HIV Care Continuum.

The purpose of the listening sessions is to better understand local and state level efforts related to the implementation of the NHAS, including discussion about how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is helping advance the Strategy. The meetings are open to the public with the goal of engaging many stakeholders about the innovations, successes, and challenges being experienced at the state and local levels.

The first of these listening sessions will be held in Jackson, Mississippi Thursday, May 29, 2014 from 2:30 PM-4:30 PM at the University of Mississippi Medical Center Conference Center.

The listening session is free and open to the public. However, pre-registration is requested so that organizers know how many attendees to expect. To RSVP, please visit: https://www.cmpinc.net/onap . Upon submitting your RSVP, you will receive a detailed confirmation letter via email.

In early June, ONAP will host two more listening sessions.

Columbia, SC  Tuesday, June 3, 2014 from 3:00 PM-5:00 PM at the University of South Carolina School of Law

Atlanta, GA  Thursday, June 5, 2014 from 2:00 PM-4:00 PM at the Loudermilk Center- Atlanta Conference Center
