On Thursday, April 25, join Chicago's restaurant community for Dining Out For Life Chicago to ensure people in Chicago affected by HIV can access essential services. Dine at a participating restaurant, and a percentage of your bill will be donated to TPAN to support programs such as HIV testing and an LGBTQIA+ youth drop-in center. If you can't go out to eat, order takeout, purchase a gift card, or make a donation to TPAN.

Dining Out For Life® is an international HIV/AIDS fundraising organization hosting dining events in more than 50 cities, raising upwards of $4 million annually. These events are magnificent in their simplicity: Through a multi-media awareness campaign, Dining Out For Life drives thousands of diners to participating restaurants, which in turn donate a generous portion of the day’s proceeds to fund HIV/AIDS care, prevention, education, testing and other essential services right here in our community.

Vivent Health/TPAN is one the nation’s leading HIV care providers, serving more than 1,500 Chicagoans living with HIV and thousands more who are affected by this disease. Our comprehensive model ensures our patients get the full scope of healthcare and supportive social services they need to live their healthiest lives. Vivent Health’s unique immersive approach has been proven to help 96% of individuals living with HIV reach an undetectable level, meaning they cannot pass the disease to another person. That means they can live a long life, and we are that much closer to ending HIV/AIDS.

Though most of our patients live in poverty, are underinsured, or don’t have insurance at all, we never turn anyone away, regardless of their ability to pay. In addition, some of our vital services, like our food pantry, legal assistance, and housing support, are not reimbursable. Last year, Vivent Health absorbed more than $15 million in uncompensated services.
