Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H., has announced that it will receive a $348,000 federal grant to provide services to individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS in New Hampshire and Vermont. Elizabeth Duke of the Department of Health and Human Services praised the medical center for its program that during the last five years has prevented all HIV-positive pregnant patients from transmitting the virus to their infants. The grant will provide a variety of health care, mental health, and social services to HIV-infected children, adults, and their families in the two New England states.
