PrEP Clinic Launch

Location: RHAC Boardroom #30-186 King St, London ON

RHAC is launching a new clinic at 186 King Street to prescribe PrEP: the HIV prevention drug! PrEP is a medication that one can take daily to prevent HIV. PrEP is highly effective when used consistently and correctly. We are happy to announce a partnership with SpecialtyRx to be able to offer this to the community, with a nurse practitioner who will be accepting clients twice a month as of June.

Mindfulness for Gay/Bi/Trans/2S/Queer Guys

Mindfulness meditation is a stress reduction technique that has been studied to help with anxiety, depression and chronic pain. Minority stress is a unique experience that oppressed peoples, such as queer and transfolk, carry the burden of, and mindfulness can assist in the development of resilience. We will also explore the concept of self-compassion, which is a method of developing a kind awareness in the face of difficulties, increasing emotional resilience and allowing us to be present for life’s challenges.
