Project TurnAround will Offer Free HIV Testing at Healthcare Forum this Sunday

Project TurnAround will join Get Covered America, The Health Initiative, and Georgia Equality to host a series of healthcare forums. Included will be discussions on the Affordable Care Act benefits the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Straight communities in Atlanta. A personal story will be highlighted before the forum, to provide perspective to others considering new options now available on the Marketplace. We will also be accompanied by Dr. Marc Jean-Gill. A Q&A workshop will be conducted by certified professionals and licensed Navigators will be on-site to guide Marketplace applicants throughout the enrollment process. In representation of Black HIV Awareness Day February 7th, we will also host free HIV screenings during the forum.

“We believe that every individual deserves affordable health insurance coverage. Now that it is possible, we are determined to leverage the combined strength of our partners to make sure all of our communities know about it,” says Cindy Bowden, Interim Director of Project Turnaround Foundation.

Get Covered America is a national campaign of Enroll America that is focused on educating consumers about the benefits of health insurance coverage and the new health care options that will be made available under the Affordable Care Act.

The Health Initiative is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of Georgia’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer community through education, support, access to care and advocacy.

Georgia Equality undertakes political action to build a fair majority in Georgia. They currently implement the Campaign for a Fair Majority – with a strategic plan for LGBT equality in Georgia. Year-round lobbying and strategic involvement in state and local elections are working to build a bi-partisan fair majority in the state legislature and among local elected officials across the state.

Project TurnAround Foundation focuses on empowering individuals to realize their potential for becoming self-sufficient. Our programs are designed to connect people with the resources they need to grow and develop. We focus on the areas of healthcare, education, and mentoring particularly those lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities. Our goal is to make a positive impact on the lives of the people and the communities we serve. We regularly measure, evaluate and make changes to our programs. We believe it is our responsibility to use the data we gained in our work to inform our community about existing challenges and solutions.
