The Board of Directors of HIV/AIDS Regional Services (HARS) announces the retirement of Executive Director John MacTavish and the appointment of longtime staff member Deb Kinder as Interim Executive Director.

A search for the permanent Executive Director position will begin shortly.

HARS looks forward to continuing to provide comprehensive services including education, prevention, and support for people living with, at risk of, or affected by HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted and blood borne illnesses.

HARS will also continue to advocate for broader social change to reduce stigma and discrimination and will work with a diverse range of people and organizations to strengthen our communities.

A new chapter has begun at HARS and we have many exciting things in the works. Keep up to date with us at www.hars.ca, or find us on Facebook and Twitter by searching for HARS Kingston.
