Jonny Stax Presents, Inc., is thrilled to be leading a campaign through the Public Health Institute of Metropolitan Chicago to help health care providers overcome internal barriers to implementing routine HIV screening in their practices. Through this campaign, Jonny Stax is studying the internal barriers of stigma, discomfort, and belief, and engaging artists, HIV-positive individuals, public health practitioners, and marketing professionals to develop creative tools that move these providers toward more routine screening. This practice in health care settings has the power to destigmatize HIV and AIDS in our society and better support the health of our communities.
Other recent projects for Jonny Stax have included expansion consultancy for Chicago Children’s Theatre and interim executive leadership with About Face Theatre. His clients include Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health, Test Positive Aware Network, Chicago Department of Public Health and Chicago Public Schools, Sierra Club, and a variety of local and national arts and social justice organizations, government agencies, entrepreneurs, and individual artists.
