"The Brent Varner Project  - a program of the HIV/AIDS Initiative of The Actors Fund - will celebrate its 7th anniversary this coming November (2009). It continues to be an invaluable resource for those we serve and an essential option when providing clinical case management within the HIV/AIDS Initiative. Since the Brent Varner Project started in 2002, some 50 plus people in need of medical care have been referred to Dr. Howard Scheiner, Dr. Kenneth Schaefer and their terrific staff. The Brent Varner Project is often the only option for many people with HIV in the arts and entertainment community who are uninsured or underinsured. The HIV and arts/entertainment communities are lucky to have a program that provides such quality comprehensive medical care to those in need. It remains a program unlike any other in New York City!" (Kent J. Curtis, LMSW, Supervisor of HIV/AIDS Initiative-The Actors Fund).
