A video by The Graying of AIDS Project, produced for AARP, about a man forced out of his assisted living facility because he has HIV.




In honor of World AIDS Day (12/1/10), the website for the AARP Bulletin highlighted the story of Dr. Robert Franke and his family. The multimedia piece (created by Graying of AIDS Project Director Katja Heinemann) and accompanying article explore the challenges the family faced after Dr. Franke decided he was no longer able to care for himself, relocated to Little Rock to be closer to his family, and applied to – and was accepted by – a tony assisted living facility. Less than a day after he moved in, Dr. Franke was ejected from his new home because of his HIV-status.
