37th annual Walk to End HIV
I joined Whitman-Walker as an AmeriCorps Fellow in August 2022 through the Washington AIDS Partnership. Beyond providing vital medical services, Whitman-Walker creates safe spaces for patients with stigmatized identities, empowering them to take charge of their health. Just 2 months into my role providing free HIV testing at our clinic, I decided to fully commit to a career in medicine because I loved seeing patients everyday. Over the last year, I have taken all the steps to apply to medical school, and now I am in the process of interviewing with schools to matriculate in Fall 2024. I am still working at Whitman-Walker, now as a full-time employee -- they liked me so much they let me come back for another year ;). I am so grateful for what I've learned at Whitman-Walker, and I am so proud of the work we do everyday.
The Walk to End HIV is a vital part of ensuring we have the resources to continue our support of at-risk and HIV-positive populations. Your donation will go toward lifesaving services that Whitman-Walker Health provides for thousands of people in our area living with HIV and AIDS—regardless of their ability to pay. And you will help fund critical prevention outreach and treatment programs that can help end HIV in D.C..
