Assuring that its membership is inclusive of all people being served by The Spahr Center is a key priority of the Board of Directors. And so, it is with admiration and excitement that we welcome Bobby Moske and Wade Flores to the Board to help assure the effectiveness of services to our 255 clients living with HIV, as well as to prevent new HIV infections.
Both Wade and Bobby have selflessly and effectively represented the needs of people living with HIV as members of the Marin HIV Care Council, the official body that guides the spending of some $800,000 in federal Ryan White Program funding coming to the County. Bobby is well known as a passionate and tireless advocate for people living with HIV, helping them to navigate complex public programs to assure that their needs are met. He is an appointee of the Marin Board of Supervisors to the Health Council of Marin and a member of the County Grand Jury, among many other affiliations. Wade has been a committed and effective volunteer for HIV services since the 1980’s, well-known for his participation in AIDS Walk, and currently as a member of the Marin Community Clinics Board of Directors.
Bobby will serve as the Board’s liaison to The Spahr Center’s HIV Advisory Committee, which makes recommendations to the Executive Director about strengthening existing HIV programs, as well as new initiatives that are needed to assure The Spahr Center’s comprehensive role in ending the HIV epidemic in Marin County.
Wade and Bobby are the finest of community leaders, and their membership on the Board of Directors is an exciting step as The Spahr Center plans for its future.
