Exclusive Interview With Guillermo Chacón, President Latin Commission on Aids NYC-2015

The Latino Commission on AIDS is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to fighting the spread of HIV/AIDS in the Latino community.

In response to the critical, unmet need for HIV prevention and care for Latinos, a coalition of Latino leaders founded the agency in 1990. The Commission realizes its mission by spearheading health advocacy for Latinos, promoting HIV education, developing model prevention programs for high-risk communities, and by building capacity in community organizations. Through its extensive network of member organizations and community leaders, the Commission works to mobilize an effective Latino community response to the health crisis created by HIV/AIDS. Since 1995, the Commission has steadily expanded its services outside New York to meet the emerging needs of Latino communities in more than 40 States and Puerto Rico.

Since its inception, the Commission has been directed by Dennis de Leon, a tireless advocate and national leader of the Latino community struggle to address the epidemic until his passing in December 2009. Guillermo Chacón, former Vice-President of the Latino Commission on AIDS and a national leader on Latinos and HIV/AIDS issues was named President by the Board of Directors in November 2009.

The Commission is dedicated to resolving the HIV crisis in the Latino community, where social stigma, poverty, language barriers, immigration status fears, and access to care, deter testing and increase the infection rate. Over 200,000 Latinos in the U.S. and Puerto Rico are living with HIV/AIDS. The fastest growing ethnic group in the U.S., Latinos constitute 17% of the U.S. population but account for over 19% of the AIDS cases.

The Commission’s public health model encompasses five core and complementary services provided to Latino communities: health education, HIV prevention, capacity building, advocacy, and health behavioral research. All services are offered in Spanish by a culturally diverse bilingual staff of health, education and business professionals.

• Health Education
• HIV Prevention
• Capacity Building Assistance
• Advocacy & Awareness
• Hispanic Health Behavioral Research

The 66th Annual Christopher Awards NYC-2015

An Olympic gold medalist, the actor best known as “the Fonz,” and a nine-time Grammy Award-winning jazz musician are among the creative forces behind the 20 feature films, TV/Cable programs, and books for adults and young people being honored at the 66th annual Christopher Awards, to be presented in New York City on May 13th, 2015.

Created in 1949, The Christopher Awards are presented to writers, producers, directors, authors and illustrators whose work “affirms the highest values of the human spirit.” Tony Rossi, Director of Communications, says, “The Christopher Awards are unique in that they celebrate both sacred and secular works across a variety of media. The stories we’re honoring—whether true or fictional—highlight people who rise above their own wants and needs to act selflessly, regardless of the sacrifice involved. These individuals are motivated by a higher purpose or a higher power—and sometimes both. As a result, they’re leaving their world better than they found it.”

One of this year’s winners, Martha Williamson – best known as the creative force behind the popular CBS series “Touched By an Angel” – had this to say about winning a Christopher Award for her latest project: “We are deeply honored to receive the Christopher Award for ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered for Christmas,’” said series Creator and Executive Producer Martha Williamson. “When Hallmark asked me to expand our franchise into a series of movies starting with a Christmas story, my goal was to prepare hearts to once again receive the true healing miracle of Christmas. This acknowledgement is encouraging to all of us who worked on the movie.”

Special Award Winner: Patrick Donohue received the James Keller Award ,Donohue created the International Academy of Hope (iHope), the first and only school for kids with brain injuries and brain-based disorders in New York City as well as the National Pediatric Acquired Brain Injury Plan (PABI Plan), which developed a standardized, evidence-based system of care that’s universally accessible for millions of American families. The James Keller Award, named after The Christophers’ founder, recognizes individuals who put their faith into action and change the world for the better.

The Christophers, a nonprofit organization founded in 1945 by Maryknoll Father James Keller, is rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition of service to God and humanity. The ancient Chinese proverb—“It’s better to light one candle than to curse the darkness”— guides its publishing, radio, leadership and awards programs.

About Tony Rossi

After graduating from St. John’s University in New York with degrees in Communications and English, Tony Rossi found a job at the Catholic media organization, The Christophers, that allowed him to indulge his interest in religion, media, and pop culture. He served as The Christophers’ TV producer for 11 years, and is currently the host and producer of the organization’s radio show/podcast Christopher Closeup, writer and editor of their syndicated Light One Candle column, and producer/scriptwriter of the annual Christopher Awards ceremony.

Envisage Renew US Product Debut at The Setai on Wall Street NYC -2015

The envisage Facial Exerciser is Revolutionizing Facial Care. envisage prompts a more youthful complexion to return naturally with no need for costly or invasive techniques. envisage is a unique approach to optimizing facial tone and tightening skin. The envisage facial exerciser is an attractive hand-held device which is designed to specifically target six areas of the face–deep cheek lines, double chin, saggy jowls, loose neck skin, forehead lines and saggy eyelids. The hand held device allows you to apply precise pressure to create resistance as you exercise each of these areas.

The resistance the pads applies is key to achieving excellent facial tone. You intensify the workout with the vibration feature. By targeting an area with resistance and vibration you are strengthening the small facial muscles and in doing so, achieve better facial tone and tighter skin. As you do the exercises, you are replacing the fat lost with aging and atrophied muscle with real muscle. You are also increasing the blood flow to the face which activates skin collagen.

This is how you improve skin tone and reduce facial wrinkles and folds. The envisage is ergonomically-designed; it fits comfortably in your hand and the vibration button is easy to access. A charger is included. Envisage is made of high-quality, non-toxic, materials, and has been carefully designed to be gentle on your skin.

Roberta Kaplan, Supreme Court Litigator, U.S. vs Windsor
A partner in the Litigation Department, Roberta (Robbie) Kaplan has been described as a “litigation superstar,” a “powerhouse corporate litigator” and a “pressure junkie” who “thrives on looking at the big picture” whether “in the gay-marriage legal fight or high-profile corporate scandals.”

Robbie successfully argued before the United States Supreme Court on behalf of her client Edith Windsor in United States v. Windsor, the landmark Supreme Court case. In Windsor, the nation’s highest court ruled that a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) violated the U.S. Constitution by barring legally married same-sex couples from enjoying the wide-ranging benefits of marriage conferred under federal law. The consequences of the Windsor decision have been both rapid and profound. Literally dozens of courts throughout the United States have explicitly relied on Windsor to extend equal rights to gay people under the law. Professor Lawrence Tribe of Harvard Law School has observed that he cannot “think of any Supreme Court decision in history that has ever created so rapid and broad a lower-court groundswell in a single direction as Windsor.”
