The mission of the Nassau-Suffolk HIV Health Services Planning Council is to provide effective planning for the Nassau-Suffolk EMA and promote development of HIV/AIDS health services, personnel, and facilities which meet identified health needs in a cost effective manner, reduce inefficiencies, and address the needs of uninsured and underinsured HIV infected individuals.
Andrea Smith – Director of Targeted Case Management
Andrea Smith has served on the Planning Council since 2012. She also sits on the Quality Assurance and Membership Committee. Andrea joined the Council so that she could play a more active role in the decisions being made for positive consumers in the Long Island region. She has been in the Human Services field for eight years and has worked with women, children, adults and families who are plagued with constant misfortunes. Her hard work and determined spirit can be attributed to being the second oldest of four siblings and a single parent. In her off time, Andrea enjoys listening to live music, watching her favorite movie Ghost and being outdoors! Her work with HIV/AIDS began in 2009 at the Long Island Association for AIDS Care where she now is the Director of Targeted Case Management. “I find it very disconcerting that AIDS is still being reported as part of the top 10 leading causes of death…I believe that with continued outreach efforts and education we can assist individuals in making different choices.”
