Both of these projects are critical in extending the city’s reach among who it effectively serves, and further ensuring that no population or community within its limits is unfairly discriminated against, overlooked, or ignored.<div><br></div><div>It is important that Phoenix continues to reaffirm itself as a community that is a comfortable and welcoming place to live for all populations, regardless of age or affliction.</div><div><br></div><div>Through the extensive data collection and tracking that these efforts will achieve, as well as leveraging as many existing resources as possible and continuously improving the breadth of services and programs available to citizens; ending AIDS as a public health threat, once and for all, will get closer to becoming a reality, and the livability for aging populations in our community will be greatly enhanced.”​</div></div>10/25/2016 11:00:00 PMDavid Urbinato602-495-5405
