IPHA and HIV Care Connect receive Vive tu Vida certificate

On Saturday, September 25, 2021, HIV Care Connect staff, Melvin Laureano, attended Vive tu Vida (Get Up! Get Moving!). The health fair, an annual event of the Chicago Hispanic Health Coalition, marked the return of this highly-regarded and well-attended community event at McKinley Park, Chicago, since the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered public events. The family oriented event, focused on the Latino community, included activities for all ages, health screenings and resources, and even soccer games! This year saw the addition of COVID vaccinations on a walk-in basis. HIV Care Connect was able to engage with hundreds of attendees in both English and Spanish, providing information about statewide HIV services and resources. IPHA and HIV Care Connect received a certificate for our "contribution and commitment towards the health care of the Hispanic community."
