Medical AIDS Outreach: Using Telemedicine to Reach Rural Alabama

Medical AIDS Outreach (MAO) of Alabama was recently honored to be featured as part of the Social Innovation Fund (SIF) Investment Spotlight during the Grantee Convening in Washington DC on September 17th and 18th. Further, we were thrilled when our project was selected as one of 11 programs featured at the What Works Showcase at the White House on September 19th. It was a great opportunity to demonstrate how Medical AIDS Outreach of Alabama and our collaborating partners at AIDS Action Coalition and Whatley Health Services have used SIF backing to move medical and support services, using High Definition telemedicine technology, to underserved poverty stricken counties in Alabama.

Commemorating AmeriCorps 20th Anniversity Through Service

Team Indy started the day off at Fort Benjamin Harrison with AmeriCorps members from across the state to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of AmeriCorps. The area was a sea of blue from everyone’s 20th Anniversary shirt! We were given an opportunity to introduce the AIDS United AmeriCorps Program and share how we impact the Indianapolis community. It was an incredible opportunity! Although we weren’t at the White House, we were able to watch a live-video feed of the President and were able to take the AmeriCorps pledge along with him. After awards and speeches were given, we were off to our first service project with Step Up!

The southern region, a paradox of the most beautiful and the most hideous elements that make up the soul of this nation, is the barometer of the health and wellbeing of the United States, and it is home to nearly half of all people living with HIV in the U.S.

Guest Blog: Food is Medicine

Nearly one in three U.S. adults with a chronic disease has problems paying for food, medicine, or both. Researchers at Harvard and the University of California at San Francisco studied data from the 2011 U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s National Health Interview Survey, and of the 10,000 adults who reported that they had a chronic disease such as diabetes, asthma, arthritis, high blood pressure, stroke, a mental health problem, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, nearly one in five said they had problems affording food during the past 30 days, qualifying as “food insecure.” Nearly one in four said they had skipped medication dosages because of cost. More than one in ten said they had problems paying for both food and medication. Among those whose illnesses were most diet-related, like diabetes and heart disease, individuals were particularly concerned with finding the right food needed to stay healthy.
