IDSA Members Give Congressman a First-Hand Look at Impact of ID/HIV Funding

Douglas 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.
