National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NGMHAAD) is September 27. On this day, we unite with partners, health departments, and other organizations to raise awareness about how HIV and AIDS disproportionately affect gay and bisexual men in the United States. You play an important role in this effort. Here are Five Things You Can Do to observe NGMHAAD!

HIV Oral Disease is now available FREE APP for IOS, Android, and Windows phones. Materials include recognition and management of common oral diseases seen in PLWH. Also included are Key Facts important to providing dental care for PLWH.

This effort was the results of a combination resources from HIVdent and the Mountain Plains AIDS Education and Training Center.

Jacque Muther

Jacque and her hero, Congressman John Lewis 

Although we are saddened by our loss, please focus on all of Jacque's remarkable accomplishments. In short, Jacque's efforts for the Ponce Center, locally in Atlanta and nationally were instrumental to advocating for our patients and many feel that she saved more patients' lives for more years than anyone else in Georgia. Her efforts at the Ponce Center kept us together and funded as a program, bringing millions upon millions of dollars to IDP.


Never happier than when she was with children, it is due to Jacque's passion and strength of will that our Pediatric program became a part of the Ponce Center. She was also key to ensuring that Ryan White funds were available not only to Atlanta, but across all parts of the United States!


A true hero in every sense of the word, Jacque was honored by the CAEAR Coalition for her lifetime of service just last year.

In lieu of flowers the family requests funds be donated to the Grady Foundation’s Jacque Muther Fund. The link to the Jacque Muther fund can be found in the Designation Section.
