On October 2nd, the White House Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP) met with over 200 community members in Minneapolis to discuss HIV and the issues confronted by our citizens here in Minnesota and surrounding areas. Jeff Crowley, ONAP Director, explained the need for help from communities and individuals across the United States to provide information on how best to address the HIV epidemic as a nation. For those who were not able to attend the discussion on October 2nd, ONAP has issued an online “Call to Action”.
