In last week’s “Connection,” we told you that Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases/NIH, was the sole presenter at NMAC’s World AIDS Day Congressional Briefing on Thursday, December 5, on Capitol Hill. You can see a video of his slide presentation here. Video of the full briefing is available here.
NMAC wants to thank Congresswoman Barbara Lee for co-hosting the briefing along with:
- Congressional Caucus on HIV/AIDS,
- Congressional Black Caucus,
- Congressional Hispanic Caucus,
- Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, and
- Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus.
And thanks to Congressman Alcee Hastings for attending the briefing.
This was the first congressional briefing that NMAC has held in a long time. This year NMAC expanded its staff and hired Joe Huang-Racalto as Director of Government Relations and Public Policy. His main task is to reestablish NMAC’s voice on the hill during this critical time.
Here are some highlights from Dr. Fauci’s presentation:
