Doug Price

InFocus turns the spotlight on the challenges faced by those with HIV/AIDS in three special segments devoted to the topic. Steven St. Julian, HIV Outreach and Prevention Coordinator for the Jackson County Health Department, will appear at different times throughout the segments to share personal insights as a long-term survivor of the disease. In this particular segment, we meet AIDS survivor Doug Price, who currently resides at Bethany Place in Belleville, a non-profit organization that provides a variety of services to those battling HIV/AIDS, including temporary housing, case management, dental and nutrition services, medication assistance, pastoral care, counseling, and more. Doug describes his current living arrangement, his ongoing need for disability assistance and care, and the discrimination and stigma he has faced since his diagnosis.
