Apicha CHC

Come join Apicha CHC and other providers to talk about transgender health care and ending the HIV epidemic!

WhatEnd the Epidemic: A new approach to health care and human rights for the queer transgender community

When: Thursday, September 28, 2017 from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m.

Where: Queens Museum, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Corona, New York, 11368 

You can RSVP by clicking here.

The event aims to introduce the End the Epidemic by 2020 Initiative to the Queens transgender community and their providers. The initiative's goal is to reduce the number of HIV infections in New York City by 2020. Health care providers attending the event will be tabling and available to answer your questions, including whether you should consider taking PrEP or need primary care.

Presentations include a panel of providers who work with transgender patients, a Q&A session for the audience, and followed by a performance by Laura Martinez from Club Evolution. The event is free and will provide some food and beverage for attendees. 

Apicha CHC

Many of the communities that Apicha CHC serves are both underprivileged and marginalized communities. Apart from providing folks with the best care, we also make an active effort to reach out and connect with folks who still need it. Transgender people still face obstacles when searching for and receiving attentive and complete health care.
