Before I came here, I hadn’t had a great deal of experience with the HIV/AIDS population. This internship put a face to the disease and showed me they were a multi-faceted group. It was so wonderful to be a part of the Broadway House mission to better the lives of the residents and help them regain their independence. During this semester, I learned so much from the staff and patients, especially about not taking anything for granted and cherishing every moment.
