The Laguna Beach HIV Advisory Committee has awarded the Laguna Beach Community Clinic a $9,950 grant; “a well-earned tribute for the LBCC, a nationally recognized leader in testing and delivery of comprehensive treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS,” said recently retired clinic staffer Dr. Korey Jorgenson.
The grant will help support an anticipated 1000 HIV tests that the clinic will administer this year. “The HIV/AIDS program is but one of the many services offered by the clinic,” said George Heed, president of the clinic’s board of directors. “Many people don’t realize that the clinic is a full service, professionally designated Patient Centered Medical Home, providing high quality care across the life span, regardless of ability to pay. We’re very proud of the work they do.”
