My name is Idiana Velez and I’ve been working in the HIV field for 13 years, currently the PrEP Navigator and HIV Education Coordinator for Community Health Center, Inc covering 14 sites throughout the state of CT. My passion is helping others and that includes raising awareness on the importance of HIV prevention. I help people at high risk for HIV obtain Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), overcome stigma, and understand their risks. In my outreach and education efforts it is evident that those who perceive themselves as having no risk for HIV are actually at the highest risk. My goal is to help them know their status and make a decision about prevention. I AM and ALWAYS will be an HIV ADVOCATE!
