In Memoriam... Congressman John Lewis (2/21/40 - 7/17/20)

    
     Rep. John Lewis     
    

United States Congressman John Lewis represented Georgia's 5th Congressional District, within which Emory University resides.

Rep. Lewis was an exceptional advocate for people living with HIV.

On February 7, 2020, in one of his final official acts in Congress, Rep. Lewis recognized National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day 2020 by introducing H.R. 5806, the HIV Epidemic Loan-Repayment Program (HELP) Act, a House Bill designed to ease the burden on health care professionals and encourage the next generation of those who aspire to care for people living with HIV/AIDS. You can follow the Bill's progress by clicking here.

Kudos ...

    
     GA COVID cases 07/29/20     
     As of 07/29/20     

... to the Georgia Department of Public Health for re-vamping their COVID-19 Daily Status Report.

This is a HUGE improvement over the infamous graph put out by Gov. Kemp's office that used an alternative "Georgian" version of the standard Gregorian calendar.

Yay! The new GA DPH-provided information is VERY user friendly, albeit terrifying.
