HBHC Awards

Howard Brown Health Center announced the winners of its Friend For Life awards: State Sen. John J. Cullerton, Lora Branch and Shane R. McCall.

The award will be presented at its annual gala "Club Midnight Blue" Oct. 26 at the Sheraton Chicago.

Branch has devoted more than 10 years to ensuring the health and well being of Chicago's LGBT community. She has worked to develop social marketing initiatives by combining TV and film with important public health messages. Recently, in collaboration with Black Cat Productions, Branch developed Kevin's Room, a film that dramatically chronicles a few weeks in the lives of six gay men, their friends and families. This film was awarded two first-place honors in the Black Filmmakers Hall of fame. She is proudly recognized as one of the first women conducting outreach at the onset of the AIDS epidemic. She has also successfully demonstrated her commitment to the City's youth through a variety of health promotional programs. Branch is currently the Director of the Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Health at the Chicago Department of Public Health.

Call (773) 388-8996.
