In this April 16, 2014 photo, Tony Wyatt, 56, of Murphysboro, Ill., a client representative with Southern Illinois HIV Care Connect, is seen in Murphysboro. HIV cases in southern Illinois reached the highest number in nearly a decade last year, with more than half the infections from the virus that causes AIDS reported in people 24 years old or younger, public health officials said. Wyatt, who has lived with HIV since 1994, said his outreach through Southern Illinois HIV Care Connect often has fallen on deaf ears in recent years. Through resources and support from the Jackson County Health Department and others, he has been able to live his life his way. As a client representative, he works with people after their diagnoses to answer questions and help them on their journey. (AP Photo/The Southern, Adam Testa)
