but now we have a micro district grant to have a business group, busi- ness people meeting together on a regular basis in Banker’s Hill,” said Jake Sutton, financial advisor for Ed- ward Jones at 2550 5th Ave., Ste. 65, who led the Micro Business District meeting, imploring his colleagues to join him in forming a committee to “pull everybody together.” “Today you need to have some


kind of clout to get things done,” said Warren J. Simon, a member of both the city’s BID Foundation and BID Council, who has been mentoring the fledgling group during its formation.

the mobile testing team will visit thousands of homes in the Mission Hills and North Park neighborhoods throughout the end of this year. Lead the Way is the world’s first comprehen-


sive “test and treat” model of HIV prevention. Locations the trained testers visit are ran-


domly selected and the tests provide results in minutes. Testers will ask those who don’t want to take a test to instead take a brief survey to assess why they declined. “Volunteering to take the quick finger-prick


test or filling out the survey will help us under- stand why people will or will not take an HIV test. If we can understand the psychology, we can create more effective campaigns to promote testing. The ultimate goal is that everyone gets tested and those who need treatment receive it, so we can significantly curb the spread of HIV,” said Susan Little, MD, professor of medicine
