So today the New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Frieden issued a memo talking about the media's misrepresentation around his reported plans to roll out a circumcision program in NYC, in part saying, "we have not suggested or planned any initiative or campaign. Quite to the contrary, I indicated in an interview with the New York Times (the source of the misrepresentation) that I very much doubted that even 1% of men at high risk in NYC would undergo the procedure." Click here for the full memo in PDF format. A couple of community forums are being planned, sources say the first will be at NYC's LGBT Center on April 26th from 6-8p with more forums coming to the Bronx and Brooklyn.
