Jack Mackenroth to walk in 20th Annual AIDS Walk Houston for Living Positive By Design

HOUSTON, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Mackenroth, from the hit reality television series "Project Runway," is visiting Houston for the 20th Annual AIDS Walk Houston, representing Living Positive By Design, his national HIV and AIDS education initiative. On Sunday, March 15th, Jack will participate in the annual event which helps to support more than 100,000 people with HIV and AIDS in the Houston area each year. The Living Positive By Design campaign seeks to help combat the stigma associated with HIV by engaging people in thoughtful conversation about the disease and is being supported by Merck & Co., Inc.

"I am excited to bring Living Positive By Design to Houston, in a city with such a high visibility of people living with HIV and AIDS," said Mackenroth. "Through Living Positive By Design, I have been speaking about my experiences living with HIV for more than 20 years, addressing the stigma still associated with the disease and highlighting the importance for people living with HIV to have a positive outlook on life while effectively managing their disease."

In addition to Jack, local HIV specialist Shannon Schrader, M.D., Medical Director for Research Access Network in Houston, TX, will also be available the weekend of the AIDS Walk to discuss the current and future landscape of HIV and AIDS treatment and research.

"One of the goals of Living Positive By Design is to educate people living with HIV that taking medications to help reduce the amount of virus in the blood to undetectable levels and helping to restore their immune system must be some of the priorities for today's disease management," said Dr. Schrader. "In addition to this, with new advancements in HIV treatment, physicians should also factor in the tolerability of treatment regimens."
