It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I share you this email with the HIV Drug & Alcohol Task Force.
We found out last evening that a beloved member of our team, Katya de la Riva passed away. Katya worked for East Valley as a Health Educator in the CHICAS program for the last 2 years. It was a privilege to have had the opportunity to work with Katya. Not only was she excellent with our patients and staff, she was a truly compassionate and genuine person. I know many of you were touched and positively impacted by Katya with her contagious smile and caring nature. Katya was always quick to jump into a task no matter how much she had on her plate and she would say ”don’t worry we got this”. We will all miss her positive outlook on life.
Please feel free to contact me directly regarding services.
