The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Prevention and Health Promotion Administration will host a forum on June 7 from 12-1:30 p.m. titled, “Transgender Marylanders and HIV: The Invisible Epidemic.” It takes place at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 1900 St. Paul St. in Baltimore.
The forum, which has been developed in collaboration with the Transgender Response Team and CATCH Maryland, will explore the causes of transgender invisibility in Maryland’s HIV surveillance data. The organizers intend to engage the community in a discussion of possible solutions to improve knowledge and understanding of how HIV affects transgender communities in Maryland.
Refreshments will be served. There is a free parking lot on 20th and St. Paul Streets. An RSVP is requested to Maryland.RACResponse@gmail.com.
