The newly-appointed director of the Illinois Department of Public Health will discuss changes in state HIV programs after recent budget cuts and how health care reform will make a difference.

The AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) is hosting a breakfast discussion with Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck, newly-appointed director for the Illinois Department of Public Health, on Thursday, Sept. 27, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Hasbrouck will speak on the future of public health programs in Illinois and share his views on HIV/AIDS issues relevant to programs, services and prevention systems. The discussion, moderated by David Ernesto Munar, AFC’s president/CEO, will convene at 200 West Jackson in the large conference room on the 13th floor.

“The Illinois HIV system of prevention and services is facing significant change – with a 42 percent reduction in state HIV funding for community services, implementation of health care reform and the Illinois HIV/AIDS Strategy,” said Ramon Gardenhire, AFC’s director of government relations. “This breakfast reception provides an opportunity to hear firsthand what role IDPH will play in these important discussions and the impact it will have on individuals living with HIV.”
