When you’re living with HIV, knowledge and action can mean the difference between a long and healthy life and a life cut tragically short. So we’re committed to making sure that those in the US who have the virus know it and are empowered to do something about it.

In 2014, we elevated that commitment and became, for the first time, a sponsor and partner of AIDS Walks in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and Miami, as well as of Pride Marches in New York, St. Louis, Denver and Kansas City. Our employees and their families and friends—including more than 200 at AIDS Walk San Francisco—raised awareness about risks and prevention and raised funds for our partners. Our ambassadors manned tents, handed out information and discussed Quest’s role as a healthcare partner, and our executives shared the podium with public health and community leaders in our collective commitment to an AIDS-free generation. We continue this commitment in 2015, as our people work to educate and advocate, and as our business works on testing transform outcomes.

Our Pride Employee Business Network was a key partner in our community activation. In recognition of our commitments and leadership in 2014, we were named a “Top Corporate Ally for Diversity” by Difference Matters Magazine and received the Community Spirit Award from the Imperial Court of New York, for our dedication to fostering inclusive communities.
