Romarie has been a passionate leader in delivering HIV prevention services to hard-to-reach, at-risk, minority communities and individuals in Long Island. Ms. McCue currently serves as the Deputy Program Director of the Suffolk County Fatherhood Initiative Program at The Retreat Inc., a domestic violence service organization located in East Hampton, NY.
Ms. McCue currently provides direct oversight to one of Retreat’s federally funded grant targeting men in the prevention of domestic violence through the Administration for Children and Families. Through this program, Romarie has made significant inroads with various Suffolk County-based social service agencies and community-based organizations serving low-income, minority men who are at-risk for committing domestic violence. Through this program men receive case management services, domestic violence education, responsible parenting classes, relationship counseling as well as linkages to needed services (i.e. health insurance, medical care, substance abuse treatment, etc.)
Over the course of her nearly 10 years tenure at the Long Island Association for AIDS Care, Ms. McCue progressed from a health educator to the Director of Mobile Outreach Programs. Ms. McCue worked to refine, improve and strengthen the response to the HIV epidemic in the local level by focusing on the goals established through the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and providing comprehensive/integrated mobile HIV prevention and rapid testing. During this time she provided direct oversight to the HIV mobile CTR and Hepatitis C testing programs funded by Nassau County, NYS, OMH, CDC and SAMHSA CSAT including managing program data and reporting. In addition, Romarie helped established LIAAC’s “Safety Counts” and “RESPECT” evidence-based programs with their latest CDC-PS-10-1003 grant and provided oversight to their NYS HIV Surveillance grant with the Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) cycle.
Ms. McCue holds a B.S. degree in Health Sciences with a Public/Community Health concentration from State University of New York at Stony Brook (2002) and is a Fellow of Center for Disease Control/Association of Schools of Public Health (CDC/ASPH) Institute of HIV Prevention Leadership (2008).
