Advocacy and Infectious Disease: Lessons from HIV Advocacy in the Age of COVID

Designated as a Public Health Grand Rounds event, this week's IDM Seminar will present William D. McColl, Esq., a strategic consultant and advocate on behalf of criminal justice reform, fair and equitable health care policies, ending HIV/AIDS and harm reduction and drug policy reform.

With 25 years of expertise in Congressional appropriations and advocacy, he is currently working with Congress on the COVID response, criminal justice sentencing alternatives, and overdose prevention. He has long worked to enact and implement health care reform, effectively advocated for ending the ban on federal funding for syringe exchange (twice), multiple successful reauthorizations including SAMHSA and the Ryan White CARE Act, treatment instead of incarceration, almost all facets of HIV national policy, ending HIV-specific criminal prosecutions throughout the U.S. and other state-level advocacy. 

**Important note to Pitt Public Health Students: This is a PUBHLT 2022: The Dean’s Public Health Grand Rounds approved event.**

The IDM Seminar Series occurs every Wednesday @ noon, during the academic term and fulfills part of the requirements for course IDM 2025 for first- and second-year students. More advanced students, faculty, post-doctoral associates and others interested are invited to attend and participate on a not-for-credit basis.
