Let's Make a Difference - Together!
The annual Walk to End HIV is an important part of our history at Whitman-Walker. In its 36th year, the Walk to End HIV represents community and resilience. It honors life lost too soon.
For nearly 50 years, Whitman-Walker has been part of the fabric of the DC community as a first responder with those living with HIV and a leader in LGBTQ+ care and advocacy. Today, our providers care for 25% of DC's HIV-positive population (3,000 people) and conduct more than 6,000 HIV tests per year. Since 1987, we have been part of every single clinical trial for the treatment and prevention of HIV, and our research teams continued to seek unlocking new prevention and treatment modalities. I am moved by their remarkable work!
I am honored to be participating in my first Walk to End HIV since joining the Whitman-Walker team last November. The work of the present is to ensure that all can access prevention and treatment for HIV, and it's why we are making a historic investment to build a new health, research, and education facility in Southeast DC.
Expected to open in summer 2023, our new Max Robinson Center will triple our capacity to see patients and dramatically increase our community-based research portfolio. This year's walk will take place on the campus of this new facility, and we look forward to gathering with community -- to walk, remember, honor, advocate, fight...and end HIV once and for all.
Thank you for helping us ensure that Whitman-Walker's legacy becomes our future promise. People are counting on us...and we are counting on you.
