Deutch Remembers AIDS Victims on 25th Anniversary of AIDS Memorial Quilt
Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) released this statement after attending the display of the AIDS Memorial Quilt on the National Mall in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of its creation:
“The 8,000 panels displayed on the National Mall are just a fraction of a quilt that is now 50 miles long and unfortunately continues to grow as more lives are lost to AIDS. As we implement the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, it is my hope that our local, state, and federal governments work together to take advantage of its many tools, from Medicaid expansion to free preventative health care, that will help those affected by HIV/AIDS access treatment and lead healthy, long lives.”
