Mayor Sarno and HHS Commissioner Caulton-Harris Meet with Advocates for Ending HIV Epidemic and for Achieving Zero HIV-Related Stigma

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Health and Human Services (HHS) Commissioner Helen Caulton-Harris met today with Richard Johnson, Health and Prevention Program Director for New North Citizens Council and Shanique Spalding and Sasha Jimenez to discuss collaboration efforts in support of the City of Springfield’s continued and ongoing efforts in addressing HIV/AIDs in our Springfield community.

Mayor Sarno stated, “It was great to meet with Mr. Richard Johnson, Mr. Kangol Cap!  Health and Human Services Commissioner Helen Caulton-Harris and her dedicated team have done tremendous work in our Springfield community in helping to increase awareness and initiatives for AIDS and HIV.  Mr. Johnson and his team at our New North Citizens Council do great work.  It was a pleasure to meet with Shanique Spalding and Sasha Jimenez.  The City of Springfield fully supports any endeavors that aim to increase awareness with a goal focused on ending the HIV epidemic and the stigmatism that follows.  Our medical communities have done wonders with their research and sciences in finding new treatments and medicine.  I am looking forward to partnering and collaborating together in the future on this worthwhile goal.”
