Senior Pride Network Niagara Meeting @ Niagara Region Headquarters

There will also be a presentation by Hailea Squires of Positive Living in HIV/AIDS and Aging. As AIDS is now a manageable condition, people with AIDS are living longer, seeking services in the community, moving into retirement and long term care settings, it is important for organizations to prepare to serve this population.
