On the eve of World AIDS Day, The Health Trust, and over one hundred of its supporters, gathered to commemorate people living with HIV and those who have died from an AIDS-related illness, and to support The Health Trust AIDS Services.
Set at the Silicon Valley Capital Club, attendees learned about The Health Trust AIDS Services, the impact the program has on its clients, and were able to celebrate two leaders in the fight against HIV.
The Community Champion Award was presented to Bob Reed for his years of unwavering compassion, advocacy and service to people living with HIV/AIDS in Santa Clara County. Bob Reed currently serves as the Chairperson of the Santa Clara County HIV Commission. He’s been a member since 2004 when the Commission was named the Santa Clara County HIV Planning Council.
Dr. Larry Mc Glynn was presented with the Red Ribbon Award for his outstanding service to individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Since 2000, Dr. Larry Mc Glynn has been the Director of the HIV Mental Health Programs at the Stanford University Positive Care Clinic and Valley Medical Center’s PACE Clinic, located in San José.

Needless to say, Dr. Mc Glynn has had a positive impact on thousands of lives in Santa Clara County and we are so fortunate to have him working in our community.
The Health Trust World AIDS Day Benefit Dinner was only made possible because of the generous support of all attendees and the generosity of the event sponsors.
