Community service providers interested in helping people living with HIV and AIDS may be eligible to receive funds from the Memphis Ryan White Part A program. The program, in existence since 2007, awards over $5 million annually to organizations helping patients in Shelby, Fayette, Tipton, Desoto, Marshall, Tate, Tunica, and Crittenden counties.

Any group able to provide services in outpatient medical care, AIDS drug assistance, oral health, substance abuse treatment, home-delivered meals, or psychological support services should attend the Ryan White Part A pre-application workshop at United Way of the Mid-South (6775 Lenox Center Court, Suite 200) on Thursday, Nov. 12 at 9 a.m.

The program was named for the now-deceased Ryan White, a teenager who contracted the disease through a blood transfusion in 1984. White was kicked out of his high school after administrators learned he had AIDS.
