Welcome to our new, fabulous BABES site

13 Jul

This site was unvieled in mid-July.  Please give us feedback on what we can do better! 

Program updates:

Our 2011 Leadership Retreat was made possible with support from Pride Foundation, Gilead Sciences, Inc., Bristol Meyers Squibb, Ms Foundation for Women and many more generous supporters.

Leadership Retreat July 2011

We just returned from our Annual Leadership Retreat.  This year’s retreat was especially well-attended, empowering and reached a dynamic group of 32 consumer advocates.  Thanks to our wonderful volunteers and presenters including Shireesha Dhanireddy, MD, assistant medical director at Madison Clinic at Harborview and Linda Scruggs from AIDS Alliance for children, youth and families.  

Linda Scruggs, Nicole Price and Pat Migliore at Leadership Retreat 2011

Attendees actively engaged in leadership workshops facilitated by national AIDS Advocates and Positive Women’s Network members Linda Scruggs and Pat Migliore.  It was a wonderful kick-off to future leadership trainings by and for women living with HIV. 

Next week we welcome Nicole Price as the new Program Manager.  We’re thrilled that Nicole has accepted the position.  She brings 7 years experience working at BABES as a peer leader and event coordinator.  She has attended numerous trainings around the country and is well-respected here in the local HIV/AIDS community.  Please join us in welcoming Nicole into this new role!

Signing off,

Amelia Vader, Program Manager for now
