Transcript 'CONNECTIONS5 GNAA NEWS The Gay Nurses' Alliance of Austin held its third meeting on April 28, 1980. We welcomed two more female nurses into membership. The Alliance membership now stands at 17. The STD program reported that as of April 28, they had obtained 392 blood samples for syphilis screening and 155 cultures for gonorrhea screening. Results from 133 syphilis tests have been returned so far. Ten new, untreated, contagious cases of syphilis were found. That's 7.5% of the individuals tested. The majority of these ten new cases came from the bookstores and baths. We are contemplating increasing the frequency of the STD clinics. A stationary clinic is also under consideration. (See survey). The Third National Lesbian and Gay Health Conference will be held in San Francisco, June 18-22 at the San Francisco State University. Registration fee is $45.00 for a working professional and $10.00 for students. Continuing Educational Units will be available for nurses and possibly for physicians. Please add $15.00 to the registration fee for CEU credits. Registration forms are available through the Gay Nurses' Alliance of Austin, 1010B Romeria Dr., Austin 78757, phone 453-0816. The Alliance has decided to conduct Voter Registration Drives during the STD clinics. No candidates have been endorsed at the present time. We will focus on getting individuals registered to vote. The Gay Nurses' Alliance of Austin does not limit its membership solely to nurses. Individuals who are involved in health care and are concerned about gay health care issues are welcomed to join us. We invite your suggestions, criticism, complaints and/or compliments. GNAA SURVEY The Gay Nurses' Alliance of Austin is seeking your input on issues which directly concern your health. Gay Community Services of Austin has offered a room at the University Y (2330 Guadalupe) where GNAA can conduct a stationary sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinic to screen for syphilis and gonorrhea. GNAA wishes to thank GCS for the beautiful invitation and for their concern about gay health issues. If GNAA establishes a stationary STD clinic, it would replace the STD clinics now being held at various gay establishments. Since this issue directly affects you, we want your opinions. PLEASE complete the questionaire below and return it to GNAA at your earliest convenience. It is very important that we know your feelings. Thank you for your time and cooperation. In Gay Pride, The Gay Nurses' Alliance of Austin l(ques (questionaire) ~l 1) I feel that a stationary STD clinic at 2330 Guadalupe would better suit my needs and/or the needs of the community. I understand that the STD clinics currently conducted at various gay establishments would stop. 2) I feel that you should continue to hold the STD clinics at the various gay establishments, as this would better suit my needs and/or the needs of the community. (CIRCLE ONE) Yes No I would like to see the establishment of a "gay clinic" which would deal specifically with gay health care. (The name and location of such a clinic would not necessarily be the above.) I Ple< Please return your questionaire to GNAA, 1010B Romeria Drive, Austin, Texas 78757.
