Display Hosts: NY Capital Chapter of The AIDS Memorial Quilt • National Hemophilia Foundation
Display Host: NY Capital Chapter of The AIDS Memorial Quilt - Founded in 1988, the Albany Damien Center is a resource center designed to improve health, reduce stress and increase the quality of life in a supportive atmosphere for individuals and families living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. In 2019, the Damien Center became the steward of the New York Chapter of the AIDS Memorial Quilt. Annually, the NY Chapter, in partnership with NYSDOH AIDS Institute, creates an 80 quilt display celebrating World AIDS Day by recognizing thousands of lives lost to HIV. This year, our 8 block virtual display is in memorial of all lives lost to HIV/AIDS throughout NYS. To learn more about the Damien Center’s Safety Net Services and programs, please visit our website.
Display Host: National Hemophilia Foundation - The national tragedy of HIV/AIDS in the hemophilia community catapulted the bleeding disorders community and NHF into the spotlight as fierce advocates for a safer blood supply and blood products. While blood and blood product safety have dramatically improved over the last 20 years, the risk remains for known and unknown potential infectious agents and pathogens that threaten the blood supply and blood products. Our commitment to blood product safety drives a strong nationwide research effort into improved treatments, including improved protein-free recombinant clotting factor products and gene therapy.
