With the sad closing of Friends-Huron Valley, Wellness Networks is the only AIDS education and support service in the area. WNI is taking on the responsibilities that Friends lett behind, ncluding ongoing support services for HIV posiĆ¼ve testers and those diagnosed with AIDS and ARC. Wellness is also trying to admmister the food bank that Friends ran so well, and of course, maintain the original support groups initially starled by WNI. Although we are saddened by the folding of Friends, we are looking forward to the challenge anead of us. Wellness stilt has an AIDS referral line that can be used for general questions about AIDS, AIDS antibody testing, legal services and local health care. The number for the referral line is 5729355 and is also the number to reach for general information about support group meeting times and locabons. In addition, if a speaker is needed for your symposium, class or church group, Wellness Networks can provide one for you. The Speakers Bureau can also be reached at our referral line. The phone is staffed aftemoons Monday through Friday and several evenings during the week. Annual elections have just been held and the new board of directors is made up of several qualified and capable professionals in counseling, grant writing and AIDS services. Wellness should be accomplishing much in the next year with this new board. As of this writing a date has not been set for the monthly board meeting. That will have to be determined by the new board. If you are interested in attending, please cali the referral line for the meeting time. Wellness Networks Inc.-Huron Valley, 3075 Clark Rd. Suite 207, Ypsilanti, Ml 48197, 572-WELL
