Jenna Rapues

As a health worker for the HIV Prevention Section of the SF DPH AIDS Office, I currently provide technical and programmatic assistance to the San Francisco Disclosure Initiative, facilitate the bi-monthly Transgender Advisory Group meetings and provide health education and safer sex materials to high school students within the San Francisco Unified School District – Condom Availability Program.

My recent responsibilities with the HIV Prevention Section include HIV6 and PCRS data entry and quality assurance, technical support for the data and evaluation team, programmatic and evaluation support for the Prevention for Positives Project. Co-supervised Neighborhood Health On Wheels staff including outreach and testing services. Assisted with NHOW data management and reporting.

My hobbies include spending quality time with my family and friends and admiring expensive handbags.

For me, forgiveness and compassion are always linked: how do we hold people accountable for wrongdoing and yet at the same time remain in touch with their humanity enough to believe in their capacity to be transformed?
