New York, NY. January 22, 2013 – The Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo has appointed Guillermo Chacón to the New York State AIDS Advisory Council. The New York State AIDS Advisory Council was created in 1983 by Public Health Law, Article 27-E, Section 2778. The Council consists of 17 representatives from the public, educational and medical communities, local health departments and nonprofit organizations, including the advocacy and service community. The Council develops recommendations regarding policy and programs, publishes reports and provides leadership on issues relating to HIV/AIDS.

“I am honored to have been appointed by Governor Andrew Cuomo to the New York State AIDS Advisory Council. I will continue working to support the response to HIV and AIDS in New York State. Only by addressing HIV & AIDS in the context of accessing health care and innovative strategies will we be able to reach an AIDS-free generation for all,” stated Mr. Chacón.

The Latino Commission on AIDS (Commission) is a nonprofit membership organization founded in 1990 dedicated to fighting the spread of HIV/AIDS in the Latino/Hispanic communities.
