Every year during our Annual Meeting, NASTAD celebrates the accomplishments of our members and partners with a series of awards. This year, we’re so proud to recognize the amazing accomplishments of Peter Whiticar, Diana Jordan, Anne Donnelly, and Dr. Theo Hodge.
Anne Donnelly began working with Project Inform 29 years ago at the height of California’s HIV epidemic. Her efforts helped increase funding to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to speed HIV drug discovery. Anne is one of the nation’s leading authorities on the complexities of Medicare, Medicaid, the Ryan White Program and their interaction. She is also an extremely effective advocate for access to quality, affordable healthcare for people with HIV and hepatitis C. Anne’s effectiveness as an advocate comes from her incredible ability to bring together different partners to work effectively towards shared goals, from her ability to see individuals’ challenges and address them on a state and federal systems level, and from her deep commitment to the people living with HIV and hepatitis C.
