Serving the residents of the District of Columbia who was HIV positive
Adolescent Screening Specialist (Former Employee), Washington, DCMay 3, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: low morale
During my early year of working for the agency we serviced the public by attending all Health Fairs.

The agency totally moved aware from servicing the public and bring awareness to the public regarding at risk behavior and the dangers of at risk behavior. It became more about politic than the cause itself, the Administrator position was a revolving – more... door along with Prevention and Intervention Services Division. Each year there was a new Administrator and Chief of Prevention. Each came with new idea's which allow the agency to be further and further from the public and servicing the public.

This is why the numbers in the District of Columbia was higher than a third world country.

If, the agency could get back to servicing the clients & the public it and stop making it a step stone of recognition. – less

A fast paced work environment. Stressful at times, but I was new at reading medical records. Management and Coworkers were very helpful and cooperative.
