In observance of the 30th anniversary of the discovery of AIDS, the Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) will be hosting a Capitol Hill Summit on Tuesday, July 26 from 1 to 6 pm in the Russell Senate Office Building. The summit will aim to mark the progress that has been made in the fight against the disease; highlight groundbreaking new research and evidence based policies; and present a roadmap for ending the epidemic.
Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s “Hardball” political talk show, will interview Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, at the beginning of the event. This will be followed by various featured speakers, including U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah, U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Dr. Eric Goosby, Chairman of the Board of amfAR Kenneth Cole, Executive Director of the Global Fund Dr. Michel Kazatchkine and FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg, among others.
