AIDS Council Plattsburgh Regional ..., 22 April 2008 [cached]
AIDS Council Plattsburgh Regional Director Diana Aguglia talks about the upcoming Dining Out for Life fundraiser.
"This is an international event that is being held in both the United States and Canada," said Diana Aguglia, executive director for the AIDS Council's Plattsburgh office.
"We're hoping to build on this year's total and expand to more restaurants (throughout Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties)," Aguglia said."But we also want to make sure every participating restaurant is packed full.
"We're hoping that people will choose to have lunch at one location and dinner at the other," she added.
Money raised locally will remain in the area, she added.Proceeds will be placed in the Plattsburgh office's client emergency fund to be used for those in the tri-county region who are facing financial needs such as food, rent, medicine or other emergency situations.
"Our office spends $58,000 in client emergency services each year," Aguglia said.
"We offer case-management services for people who are HIV positive," Aguglia said, adding that support is available for legal services, health-care referrals and coordinating services amongst a variety of agencies.
Prevention education for at-risk populations is also an important role of the 10-member staff at the Plattsburgh office, Aguglia noted.

Diana Aguglia, regional director for the AIDS Council for Northeastern New York, praises the opportunity Rietsema's clinic provides for AIDS patients in the area.
"The clinic he runs is vital to our clients," she said, acknowledging the benefit patients gain from his acceptance of AIDS and Medicaid. "He also makes personal calls to the AIDS Council to check on patients when he hasn't seen them for a while.
Many of Rietsema's patients come through the AIDS Council or are diagnosed at local health-department or Planned Parenthood offices, she added.
"He and his staff are very supportive," she said.

"We'll be expanding our screening for chlamydia and gonorrhea," said Diana Aguglia, regional director for the AIDS Council, noting that those are the two most prevalent sexually transmitted diseases in the North Country.
"We felt it would be more productive if a person is at risk for HIV and STDs to offer the testing here rather than test for HIV here and then send the patient to Planned Parenthood or their primary-care doctor for the STD test," she explained.

But, though it's rare, AIDS can be contracted through oral sex if the person has a cut or sore in his or her mouth, said Diana Aguglia, Plattsburgh regional director of the AIDS Council of Northeastern New York.
And many STDs can be transmitted by fellatio and cunnilingus, including human papilloma virus, herpes simplex virus, hepatitis B, gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia.
Anya and her boyfriend weren't concerned about those diseases when performing oral sex on each other.
"He never wore a condom and he climaxed once while I did it to him," she said."But I didn't really worry if I could get something."
a way to get a guy
Anya isn't the only person who engaged in oral sex in middle school and feels this way.
"We are seeing girls from eighth grade on up giving oral sex to guys, thinking it's not sex, but virgin sex," Aguglia said."And usually the boys aren't doing it to the girls."
She also sees what she referred to as "hookups."
"Girls are out there looking for a hookup and will give a guy (oral sex), hoping they'll go out with them," she said.
"Parents really need to be aware that these kinds of behaviors are happening in the North Country.It's all over the state, because, in Albany, they are seeing the same thing."
more questions
Some wonder if it's just media hype, similar to the sensationalized "Summer of the Shark," where news stories made it seem there were more shark attacks, when in fact the numbers hadn't increased.
AIDS still prevalent, health officials warn, 11 June 2002 [cached]
"Kids think today that nothing is going to happen to them," said Diana Aguglia, executive director for the AIDS Council."They engage in risky behavior because they have a sense that nothing is going to harm them."
"This is a population of people who've been divorced or have lost a spouse," Aguglia said."They're new to the dating world.They usually connect condom usage to pregnancy, and since most don't have to worry about that, they don't think about using condoms."
Physicians will continue to treat patients infected with HIV, and the AIDS Council will continue to provide support and education, but what the future holds for people with AIDS, or those who may contract AIDS, is not so clear.
