Philadelphia FIGHT is a comprehensive HIV/AIDS service organization providing primary care, consumer education, advocacy, and research on potential treatments and vaccines. FIGHT was formed as a partnership of individuals living with HIV/AIDS and clinicians, who joined together to improve the lives of people living with the disease. Today, FIGHT serves an even broader patient population and recently received designation as a Federally Qualified Health Center. FIGHT strives to address not only HIV-infected patients, but all at-risk populations through education, outreach, and preventative medicine. The annual Bridging the Gaps interns are responsible for several projects, including a client satisfaction survey, a “Faces of FIGHT” client portrait project, and this year, a project on incarceration health for FIGHT’s new HIV-negative clinic, the John Bell Health Center.
