The Board of Directors of Regional HIV/AIDS Connection (RHAC) invites you to join us for this year’s Annual General Meeting on Thursday, September 5, 2019.

Please join us as we review of our performance during fiscal 2018, along with reflection on key impacts we have made in the community and the election of new members to the Board.

If interested in becoming a member, you can find the membership form to fill out here. Please return the form by Monday, August 26, 2019.

To RSVP, contact Martin at mmcintosh@hivaidsconnection.ca or 519.434.1601 ext. 229

We will be joined by our keynote speaker for the evening, Dr. Andrea Sereda. Dr. Sereda is a family physician who cares for groups of people who have been marginalized and excluded from traditional healthcare models. Her practice focuses on people who inject drugs, people living with homelessness and women involved in the sex trade. Dr. Sereda believes in breaking down barriers and in providing equitable, culturally appropriate, and assertive care to all of her patients.

We look forward to seeing you there!
