Meet Aleida Espinal Fernández! Aleida joins the Latino Commission on AIDS and the Latinos in the South Program as the North Carolina Community Organizer based in Charlotte, NC.
Originally from the Dominican Republic, Aleida has over 14 years of experience working as a Ryan White medical case manager, outreach, HIV prevention, and education prioritizing the Latinx community, LGBTQ+, immigrants, and individuals living with HIV as their lives are impacted by it. Prior to joining the Latino Commission on AIDS, Aleida worked for Carolinas Care Partnership, Novant Health, and Rain, Inc in Charlotte, NC.
“I am passionate about improving the lives of so many living with HIV and their families where stigma, cultural beliefs, and lack of access to health insurance are some of the aspects that affect access to care the most.”
Aleida will support the Latinos in the South in our access to care and community-building efforts including Medicaid Expansion and improving PrEP/PEP access for Latinx women.
