'Project Runway' Designer in New Orleans to Educate About Living with HIV and Combat Stigma Associated with the Disease through Living Positive By Design
Date:9/18/2009

NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Mackenroth, from the hit reality television series "Project Runway," is visiting New Orleans for the 20th annual NO/AIDS Walk and is bringing Living Positive By Design, his national HIV and AIDS education initiative, to the city. On Sunday, September 20th, Jack will participate in the Walk which helps to support the NO/AIDS Task Force as well as several other AIDS Service Organizations in Louisiana 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 supported by Merck & Co., Inc.

"I am proud to bring Living Positive By Design to New Orleans, a city whose positive outlook is an inspiration to people all over the United States," said Mackenroth, who has been living with HIV for more than 20 years. "Living Positive By Design highlights the importance for people living with HIV to have a positive outlook on life while effectively managing their disease and works to combat the stigma still associated with HIV."

In addition to Jack, local HIV specialist Pedro L. Gonzalez, M.D., will also be available the weekend of the AIDS Walk to discuss the current landscape of HIV and AIDS treatment and research.

"Living Positive By Design educates people living with HIV about the importance of disease management to help maintain a good quality of life. People with HIV should work with their doctor to find a treatment regimen that can reduce the amount of virus in the blood to an undetectable level and help restore their immune system," said Dr. Gonzalez. "Given all the treatment options that are available today, it is important that both the efficacy and tolerability of treatments be considered when choosing a regimen."
