Clinic Serving People Living With HIV In Northern Virginia Opens
A new clinic, called the INOVA Juniper Program, opened in Northern Virginia on Wednesday to meet increasing demand for HIV/AIDS medical services in the area, WUSA9.com reports. The clinic helps to fill a gap after the failing economy forced the Washington, D.C.-based Whitman-Walker Clinic to close a branch that served the area last year. Karen Berube, HIV care specialist and the new medical director for the Juniper program, said there is an immense need for HIV/AIDS services in Northern Virginia. The new clinic will serve about 200 clients (Vance, WUSA9.com, 6/17).This is part of the Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
