2nd Public Session on HIV Infection Rate


Seattle Post-Intelligencer (10.03.03) - Tuesday, October 07,

Following a well-attended Town Hall meeting last month, Gay City Health Project will host a second gathering to encourage discussion about increasing rates of HIV infection in King County. More than 250 people went to the first meeting, where public health experts led a panel discussion. Organizers say the second meeting will be more informal, with community members encouraged to air their concerns. Officials project a 60 percent increase in new HIV cases among gay and bisexual men this year, based on 94 new cases diagnosed in the county's public health clinics in 2002. The meeting will be held on October 13 at 7 p.m. at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center, 1115 E. Pike St. For more information, telephone 206-860-6969.
