Your participation in this unique event will provide urgently needed funding for local HIV/AIDS research and care. Greater demands are being placed on the health care system with medical advances now allowing people with HIV/AIDS to live longer and healthier lives. DINING BY DESIGN provides support for the UCSF Positive Health Program at San Francisco General Hospital, which cares for the more than 3,000 people with HIV/AIDS.
