NassauCountyAwardOn July 11, 2015 the Long Island Association for AIDS Care, Inc. (LIAAC) participated in the Nassau County 4th Annual Health & Wellness Fair hosted by Nassau County Legislator, District 3 – Carrié Solages. Held at Green Acres Mall, LIAAC was one of over a dozen agencies that participated in an event that went from 11am – 3pm. This successful event has grown each year, bringing together healthcare providers and services under one roof to provide Nassau County residents with valuable resources and information. The hundreds of attendees and mall patrons made their way through numerous booths, where providers engaged the public and handed out FREE giveaways to promote awareness on many health related issues they may not get on a regular, everyday basis. LIAAC was on hand to provide valuable FREE and CONFIDENTIAL HIV & HEP C testing, and staff engaged the public and answered any questions people may have had. Anyone who visited the LIAAC booth was treated to many useful giveaway items, FREE condoms and valuable literature on many health related topics such as HIV/AIDS, Hep C, Syphilis, STD’s and chronic diseases. Nassau County and Legislator Solages, awarded LIAAC for their participation in the event, with a special citation thanking them for “outstanding community commitment and dedication”. LIAAC was proud to be part of this prestigious annual event. LIAAC strives to serve the Long Island community each and every day with services that promote education, awareness and healthy behavior as well as providing testing throughout Long Island.
