Drevets, MD, FIDSA, chief of infectious diseases at the University of Oklahoma
Health Sciences Center (OUHSC), and Nelson Agudelo Higuita, MD, assistant
professor of medicine at OUHSC, welcomed U.S. Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) for a tour
of OUHSC’s HIV Clinic and a dialogue about the impact of federal funding for
infectious disease and HIV research and public health programs in Oklahoma. The
visit, which took place during Congress’s August recess, was timely because
Rep. Cole chairs a House subcommittee that plays a key role in health funding.
Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK); Douglas Drevets, MD, FIDSA; and Nelson Agudelo Higuita
MD, of Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center
