Thanks to Walk It Out

The HIV Program and Virology Clinic at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics would like to publicly thank Walk It Out.  

Walk It Out is a UI student organization that brings various cultures together annually to showcase their cultures through a multicultural fashion show at the IMU. The focus of the Walk It Out event this year was to raise HIV awareness and to raise money for an HIV/AIDS-related organization.  We are extremely pleased that the donations raised at this year's event were given to our HIV Patient Fund, housed in the Department of Social Services at the UIHC. More than $1,000 was raised to help support patients in need of assistance for travel to UIHC for their appointments and for other services.

We in the HIV Program at UI are extremely pleased that Walk It Out chose to highlight HIV/AIDS awareness this year, and we are honored and grateful to be the recipient of this year's donations.
