HHHRC in the News
In addition to coverage of this year’s AIDS Walk and recent bills advancing protections for Hawaii’s sexual and gender minorities, recent stories in local media highlighted HHHRC’s work and expertise.
HHHRC’s programs were covered in the latest issue of HMSA’s Island Scene magazine in a feature titled “Reimagining Care.” The story highlighted HHHRC’s mobile medical unit, the availability of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent HIV via an injection every two months or a daily pill, and ongoing crisis intervention training efforts with the Honolulu Police Department.
HHHRC Executive Director Heather Lusk was quoted on the efficacy and availability of naloxone in stories on KHON2 (“Demand for fentanyl overdose treatment skyrocketing in Hawaii,” June 29) and Hawaii News Now (“In effort to save lives, Honolulu firefighters to add opioid overdose reversal drug to their trucks,” June 15).
Lusk was also featured in a KHON2 story on the emergence of monkeypox in Hawai῾i (“Monkeypox ‘probably in our community’: DOH,” June 9).
