The Community Connections Committee usually meets on the second Thursday of each month, with the exception of September. Meetings are from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. at 1809 Art Museum Drive (Building 3400), Jacksonville, FL.

Community Connections is a committee under the auspices of the Metropolitan Jacksonville Area HIV Health Services Planning Council. Committee meetings are open to the public and comply with the Government in the Sunshine Law. Community Connections Committee meetings provide information on a variety of topics of interest to the HIV infected and/or affected community, and attendees have the opportunity to meet, greet, and foster comradery. The Community Connections Committee is not a support group; it is a public meeting.
