A Caribbean family health clinic run by Lutheran Medical Center received $3.4 million from the Department of Health and Human Services to help fight HIV/AIDS, Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D- N.Y.) announced Tuesday. Lutheran's Caribbean Family Health Center and the Caribbean Women's Health Association will get $1.4 million for an education program, and $2 million over the next four years will be spent on an information exchange program between CFHC and an HIV clinic in Trinidad. "This federal funding is another step forward in continuing the Lutheran Medical Center's ability to help those living with HIV get the support they need in a culturally sensitive environment," said Velazquez.
