In memory of Marlene Diaz

  1. I had the privilege of working with Marlene during the 90s when she was a very active member of AIDS Treatment Data Network, but lost touch around 2001. Was trying to see if I could fine a way of getting back in touch and am very sad to find this post, if you are able to share any more information I would greatly appreciate it.

    • Hi Richard,

      I was in contact with Marlene up until the time of her death. I have definitely been slacking on adding more information to this page, although I think about Marlene almost every day.

      I’m happy to try to answer any questions you may have…just let me know what I can do.

      • Hi, thanks for responding. I guess maybe the date that she passed and whether there is a memorial anywhere–I’d like to write to POZ Magazine and encourage them to write a tribute to her. Do you know if Margaretha is OK?

      • Sorry, super-delayed response. Margaretha is doing well. I don’t write a lot about her here just because I want to respect her privacy to some extent (well, besides posting pictures of posters with her face on them ;-/)

        She passed away on December 14, 2010. I would love to see some kind of tribute to her in Poz. I don’t subscribe, but I do follow the blog now and again.

        Thanks for reaching out…
