The Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America is a ten-year initiative beginning in FY 2020 to achieve the important goal of reducing new HIV infections to less than 3,000 per year by 2030. As HRSA has noted, community health centers are an integral partner in reducing HIV in the communities they serve. Please join the West Virginia Primary Care Association (WVPCA), HITEQ, MAAETC, and Gilead for an exciting five-part webinar series to assist health centers with preparing to meet the goal of the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative by sharing useful strategies both with data/HIT and clinical interventions. 

Please join the WVPCA and HITEQ as we discuss the community health center's role in this initiative, how the HIV UDS measure data can be leveraged for prevention and screening and available support from HITEQ and the WVPCA to meet your HIV screening goals.

PRESENTERS: Jillian Maccini, Project Director, HITEQ Center and Emma White RN, WVPCA
