HIVMA Leaders Promote HIV Research and ID Specialty on Capitol Hill

HIVMA Executive Director, Andrea Weddle with HIVMA Board Members (l to r): Raj Gandhi, MD, FIDSA; Bill Towner, MD, FIDSA; Judy Aberg, MD, FIDSA; Carlos del Rio, MD, FIDSA; Wendy Armstrong, MD, FIDSA; HIVMA staff member Kim Miller; Michelle Collins-Ogle, MD;  Rochelle Walensky, MD, MPH, FIDSA; Ada Adimora, MD, MPH, FIDSA; and Donna Futterman, MD

HIVMA leaders met with more than 20 Congressional offices earlier this month highlighting the importance of a sustained commitment to robust funding for HIV/AIDS programs including HIV/AIDS research at the National Institutes of Health in addition to the importance of the infectious disease workforce in terms of increasing the number of young doctors choosing the field of ID and placing appropriate value on the work they do.


Michelle Collins-Ogle, MD; Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC); Ada Adimora, MD, MPH, FIDSA

With HIV/AIDS research proposed to be flat-funded for a third year in a row, now is a critical time to educate policymakers on the importance of sustaining the commitment to HIV/AIDS research. Please help amplify the message by calling on your legislators to sustain robust funding for NIH and other programs critical to addressing the HIV epidemic through the IDSA/HIVMA Action Center. It only takes a few moments to help make a difference!
