Stacy Duck

The Alliance of AIDS Services – Carolina (AAS-C) continues its more than 20-year service to the Triangle area as they continue to welcome new executive director Stacy Duck into its fold.

Duck was hired on Aug. 6 and brough with her a wealth of experience from her service as executive director of the Chatham Social Health Council in Siler City, N.C.

Duck has 22 years of experience in mental health and five years of experience with HIV prevention and education, including 12 years with the State of New York’s Developmental Disabilities Services Office. Duck has also contributed to numerous scholarly articles on Latino men and their sexual health in conjunction with ongoing research at Wake Forest University’s School of Medicine.

AAS-C serves people living with HIV/AIDS, their loved ones, caregivers and communities at large, through compassionate and non-judgmental care, prevention, education and advocacy.

Dating back to a 1989 consolidation of a number of grassroots AIDS service organizations in the Triangle, AAS-C currently provides an array of services to people living with HIV/AIDS in an eleven-county region. These services include medical and non-medical case management, pastoral counseling, nutritional counseling and a food pantry, prevention, testing and education.
