Chicago, IL. ( June 13, 2017 )—Test Positive Aware Network ( TPAN ) will celebrate the opening of its new office with an open house and ribbon-cutting on Monday, June 19, at its Edgewater location, 5537 N Broadway.

The open house, which will run from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., will feature a ribbon-cutting ceremony with U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky, TPAN CEO Patti Capouch, and Howard Brown Health's President and CEO David Ernesto Munar.

The open house coincides with TPAN's 30th anniversary. The agency was founded on June 19, 1987 by a group of HIV-positive Chicagoans looking for treatment information and medical options at the height of the AIDS epidemic. "June 19 is a special day for TPAN, in which we honor our founders. Their bravery and self-determination in the face of a new disease is central to our work" says CEO Patti Capouch. "While our services have expanded, we continue to foster hope and self-empowerment for every individual who walks through our doors."

The event will mark the beginning of TPAN's latest partnership with Howard Brown Health—a co-located four-room primary care clinic at TPAN's office. "TPAN has always specialized in programs and services that provide individuals with wrap-around support at one location. Clients will now be able to access their medical care on-site at TPAN," says Julie Supple, Director of Client Services. "This partnership with Howard Brown means that clients can access HIV medical care, hepatitis C treatment, STI testing and treatment, same day PrEP and PEP prescriptions, anal and cervical pap smears, and hepatitis A and B vaccinations—all at TPAN."

"Howard Brown is excited to partner with TPAN to expand affirming and sex-positive primary care available to people in the Edgewater neighborhood," said David Ernesto Munar of Howard Brown Health. "TPAN has a long history of providing excellent supportive services for people seeking HIV/hepatitis C support, and we're excited to augment their efforts with comprehensive healthcare services. Our collaborative clinic hopes to continue meeting the needs of people living with and affected by HIV across Chicago."

The clinic will begin seeing patients on Monday, July 3, open 3-days a week: Mondays, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9 a.m-5 p.m.

The public is invited to attend. Following the ribbon-cutting, TPAN's office will be open for guided tours for the public and media.

Test Positive Aware Network saves lives and empowers those affected by HIV/AIDS and related illnesses. The direct service nonprofit and publisher of Positively Aware provides all programs and services free of charge, without judgment or stigma.
