What’s Case Management? Here’s A Video Example

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

Hudson Valley Community Services provides a range of services for people living with chronic illnesses–including case management. But what is case management? We say that phrase all the time in the social services field, but what does that mean?

Rather than try to define it, HVCS’ LaShonda Cyrus (who was promoted to Assistant Director of Client Services right after this video was made) shares an example of what it takes to connect people in need with the services that help them live their best life.

This video was animated and produced by Darell Green, a student at Dutchess Community College, as part of their Service Learning Program under the advisement of Prof. Holly McCabe.

New Video! Let's Stop HIV Together

Monday, August 13th, 2012

We are excited to share information about Let’s Stop HIV Together, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new HIV awareness and anti-stigma campaign launching nationwide. The campaign gives voice to people living with HIV from all walks of life, alongside their friends and family members. As part of the campaign, these individuals share their personal stories and call on everyone to join the fight against the disease. Let’s Stop HIV Together highlights the fact that HIV touches every corner of American society and that people with the infection are part of the fabric of our families and valued members of our communities. Click here to watch the campaign video:  Please also visit to download all campaign materials, view and share the campaign videos and PSAs, and share your personal stories about how you, your friends, and your colleagues are stopping HIV together.

Let’s Stop HIV Together
encourages everyone to:

  • Get the facts – Learn the basics of HIV transmission and prevention.
  • Get tested – CDC recommends that every adult and adolescent get tested at least once in his or her lifetime, and those at increased risk (for example, men who have sex with men, and individuals with new or multiple sexual partners) get tested at least once a year.
  • Get involved – Encourage friends and loved ones to get tested and speak out against the stigma and complacency that help fuel the spread of HIV.

More than three decades after the first reported AIDS cases, HIV is still a crisis in the United States.  Approximately 50,000 Americans become newly infected each year, and an estimated 1.1 million people are now living with HIV. Yet, nearly one in five of these individuals does not know that they are infected.

The new campaign will appear in national print and online ads, television and radio public service announcements (PSAs), billboards and other outdoor advertising venues, and will be the focus of a national media relations effort to generate print and broadcast news stories.
