Client representatives are persons who share client concerns and needs within the counties where they reside. The client representatives act as the liaison between the local community and the Ryan White Part B Advisory Council. At council meetings they speak, act, and/or vote on behalf of the community in their local area. They provide feedback on issues and concerns, while making recommendations to the Part B Advisory Council. PHS currently has two persons volunteering in this federally mandated position.
Positive Health Solutions was formerly known as Heart of Illinois HIV/AIDS Center (HIHAC).
