The nation’s HIV chief, Kevin Fenton, said Thursday that “leadership, passion and integrity” will help bring about the end to HIV/AIDS and when it does, AID Atlanta will be among the national leaders to make it happen.
The remarks (video above) from Fenton, an Atlanta resident and chief of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention’s HIV efforts, came while he accepted an honor from the organization as it celebrated its 30th anniversary on Thursday during AID Atlanta Honors.
The event also honored the five founders of AID Atlanta, Gap and AutoTrader.com for their partnerships and support, and longtime board member Tom Roeck. The upscale event was held at the Temple, which sits next to AID Atlanta’s offices on Peachtree Street in Midtown.
