PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Mackenroth, from the hit reality television series "Project Runway," is visiting Philadelphia for this year's annual AIDS Walk Philly and is bringing Living Positive By Design, a national HIV and AIDS education initiative, to the city. On Sunday, October 18th, Jack will participate in and speak at the Walk, which benefits 30 HIV organizations throughout the Delaware Valley Region through the AIDS Fund. 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.

"Merck's ongoing commitment to the HIV community is demonstrated through Living Positive By Design, which highlights the importance for people living with HIV to have a positive outlook on life while effectively managing their disease," said Mackenroth, who has been living with HIV for more than 20 years. "Philadelphia has been greatly impacted by HIV and I am proud to be partnering with Merck to bring awareness about the disease to their hometown."

In addition to Jack, local HIV specialist, William R. Short, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Medicine Division of Infectious Diseases Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University will be available the weekend of the AIDS Walk to discuss the current landscape of HIV and AIDS treatment and research.

"There are many different treatment options available today. People with HIV should work with their doctor to find a treatment regimen that is right for them," said Dr. Short. "Through Living Positive By Design, we hope to educate the people living with HIV in Philadelphia about the importance of disease management."

Living Positive By Design was launched in 2008 in Miami/Fort Lauderdale, FL, at the 2008 United States Conference on AIDS (USCA). Since then, Jack has brought the campaign to A
