HopeHealth hosts virtual AIDSWalk 2020
On Saturday, Dec. 5, HopeHealth hosted AIDSWalk 2020 with a virtual program in place of the traditional walk through downtown Florence.
The 23rd AIDSWalk event went virtual this year due to COVID with online participants joining a handful of HopeHealth staff on Facebook Live as they walked through Timrod Park.
During the event, those at the park lit candles and held a moment of silence in remembrance of those who have lost their lives to HIV/AIDS. In addition, Carl M. Humphries, CEO, Sallie Bachman, chief of special programs, and Tamala Dixon, Infectious Diseases practice administrator, spoke on the impact of HIV/AIDS and how treatment of the disease has progressed over the last 30 years.
