“And with Whitman-Walker’s new facility comes a boost in the services they provide. The new building features 28 medical exam rooms, nine dental suites, a concierge, health and wellness suites, physical therapy, and, at the ground level, an expanded pharmacy. Among the services that 1525 will continue to offer are primary medical care, psychiatry, pharmacy, mental health and addiction counseling, dental care, legal services, HIV counseling and testing, and more.”-Cohen, Matt. “Whitman-Walker Opens New, Sleek Headquarters On 14th Street.”dcist.com 5 Jun 2015
This piece right here is a very good example of positive change on 14th street. I see that there are many things that residents have had to adapt to in the city, and for some, the LGBTQ acceptance would have been very uncomfortable. However, the fact that there is a whole medical business dedicated to the AIDS crisis, screams progress. I like this because my site is a reflection of transition, and adaptation. Without specific representations of progress, we would not be paying as much reverence as we to DC we do today, had it only been the capital alone. However, I would like to know of any consequences, the city has faced in response to WW’s work.
