Trillium Health Marks World AIDS Day

Dec 1, 2022

Event planned at Native in Rochester on Thursday, December 8

December 1, 2022 (ROCHESTER, N.Y.) — World AIDS Day is observed annually on December 1 to remember people who have died from an AIDS-related illness, show support for people living with HIV, and raise awareness about HIV prevention. This year, Trillium Health will mark the event with a fundraiser on Thursday, December 8, from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at Native (180 S Clinton Avenue, Rochester). The event will include an open bar, hors d'oeuvres, a brief program, and performances.

“We’ve come a long way in the past 4 decades,” said Dr. William Valenti, SVP for Strategic Advancement, Chief of Innovation, Co-Founder, and Staff Physician at Trillium Health. “Today, people living with HIV who take their medication, do regular blood work, and meet with their doctor a few times a year can live long, healthy lives. As we work to End the Epidemic, we will continue to do what we have always done – provide exceptional, compassionate care, and lead the fight against HIV/AIDS.”

“Over forty years ago, the idea of creating a comprehensive, community-based healthcare center for people with HIV/AIDS was courageous and innovative. Today, Trillium Health's model of care is the benchmark in HIV prevention and treatment and the foundation upon which we have expanded services to all people with unmet healthcare needs,” said Andrea DeMeo, President and CEO of Trillium Health. “We hope that the community will join us for our annual World AIDS Day fundraiser on Thursday, December 8, to celebrate the progress we have made toward an AIDS-free generation and ensuring quality of life for those living with HIV.”
