HopeHealth hosted annual AIDSWalk

HopeHealth hosted its annual AIDSWalk on Saturday, December 3, on the grounds of the HopeHealth Medical Plaza at 360 North Irby Street in Florence.

Registration began at 9 a.m. in the Meditation Garden, where participants received a free AIDSWalk 2022 T-shirt to wear during the event. The event’s program included an invocation from Reverend Calvin Robinson, opening words from HopeHealth CEO Carl M. Humphries, and a moving patient story from Fredrick Williams, infectious disease practice administrator. The non-competitive awareness walk around the Medical Plaza kicked off at 10 a.m.

In addition to T-shirts, balloon animals, and door prizes, attendees enjoyed music by DJ Stylz. HopeHealth staff also provided free health screenings and information on programs and services available at HopeHealth. Participants were treated to a boxed lunch to conclude the day’s activities.

On the importance of the event, Nicole Echols, director of external affairs, shared, “HopeHealth got its start in 1991 as a grassroots HIV/AIDS support organization, and it’s important that supporting this community stays at the forefront of our mission.”

AIDSWalk has been hosted by HopeHealth since 1993, and serves to bring awareness about the importance of prevention, treatment, and breaking the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS.



HopeHealth educates its patients on the importance of having a health care home. As a primary care facility, HopeHealth’s medical team works to prevent and detect illness and the early onset of disease, provide routine physical examinations and promote overall healthy lifestyles.
