Looking forward immensely to this year's Drag Ball, which is our major fun(d) raiser,

so generously produced for us by the House of LeMay. The Music, the Costumes, the outrageous acts. What a treat.  We'll be there  at the VTPWAC table, drop in and see us. Maybe we'll recognize you, maybe not.

For a number of years, Dr. Ken Greenberg of Denver, Colorado, has been doing a medical update workshop at our annual Retreat. He is knowledgeable, articulate, straightforward, honest, and funny. He answers questions clearly and directly. I wish he were practicing in Vermont.

The first day of autumn has arrived, and I find myself gazing at the lovely photo from the July retreat that is hanging on the bulletin board here in my office.

One of the most common problems among people living with HIV in Vermont, and across the country, is trouble maintaining stable housing.

Going into the retreat this year, I was excited to get to know everyone and learn, but the emotion that dominated my thoughts was nerves.
