Whitman-Walker Health, We See You
As part of Whitman-Walker’s 40th anniversary, officially January 13, 2018, we’re sharing 40 stories to help tell the narrative of Whitman-Walker in community. We’d like to re-introduce ourselves. We are Whitman-Walker Health, a federally qualified nonprofit health center serving the greater Washington, DC community. Aging back to 1973, Whitman-Walker started as a Gay Men’s VD Clinic in the basement of Georgetown Lutheran Church and offered alcohol substance abuse services specific to gay men. We incorporated as Whitman-Walker Clinic in 1978 and were mildly prepared for the HIV/AIDS epidemic to come.
During our 40+ years of fighting stigma and saving lives, one component has stayed the same — you. You have been the reason we exist. You have been our communities and our family.
You deserve a healthcare home where you can be you and be treated with dignity, respect and love. Serving you is our privilege.
We See You!
