New York (June 20, 2019) ACRIA held an intimate luncheon celebrating the Love Heals Center for Youth & Families and the girls and women empowered through the program. Love Heals provides comprehensive science-based sexual health education, including HIV prevention, as well as leadership development skills to youth whose communities remain heavily impacted by HIV, other STIs, and unintended adolescent pregnancies.
Guests in attendance included women leaders from the fashion, art, media, and design communities, including ACRIA Advisory Board Members Isabel Rattazzi and Deborah Hughes, as well as Sandra Brant, Muriel Brandolini, Nan Bush, Lady Liliana Cavendish, Suzanne Cochran, Grazia D’Annunzio and Andrea Franchini.
ACRIA is a leading international HIV/AIDS research, education, and prevention organization, the nation’s recognized authority on the emerging issue of older adults and HIV, and, through Love Heals, the largest provider of HIV and sexual health education in New York City schools. For more than 25 years, ACRIA has been championed tirelessly by the fashion, art, media, and design communities.
