Dr. Rachel Levine Opens USCHA (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, July 27, 2021

U.S. Assistant Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine will speak at the opening plenary of the 2021 U.S. Conference on HIV/AIDS (USCHA) on Friday Oct. 29th at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC. The 2021 United States Conference on HIV/AIDS takes place October 28th to 31st. Dr. Levine stated, “I started my residency at Mount Sinai in New York City during the early ‘80s & witnessed the HIV/AIDS pandemic firsthand. We’ve made so much progress – from testing to treatments – but there is still a long way to go. We need to increase access to testing & treatment (including PrEP), ensure equitable access & expand telehealth services. NMAC continues to play a critical role towards ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic. I am delighted to speak at the opening plenary session & work with partners & attendees towards a brighter future.” Paul Kawata, Executive Director of NMAC concluded, “Secretary Levine has been a barrier breaker throughout her career in public life as well as a dedicated public servant. Her experience in public health & as a trans woman has brought a new and much needed voice and knowledge to the federal fight to end the HIV epidemic. We look forward to welcoming her to USCHA & working with her to bring the epidemic to an end.” In January I was on a press conference call with Dr. Rachel Levine discussing a Center for American Progress report outlining how the Biden administration can & should address the health needs of our LGBTQ community especially after four years of neglect & abuse by the outgoing Trump administration.
