Invite you to Whitman-Walker Health's premier spring event which brings community and business leaders together to honor an extraordinary individual whose commitment to health care and the fight against HIV is unparalleled.  In 2013, Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) was presented with the annual Partner for Life Award.

Jeff Crowley web Jeffrey Crowley is the recipient of this year's Partner for Life Award.  Mr. Crowley is the Program Director of the National HIV/AIDS Initiative at the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law and Distinguished Scholar.  From February 2009 through December 2011, he served as the Director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy and Senior Advisor on Disability Policy for President Barack Obama.  In this capacity, he led the development of our country's first domestic National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States, a five-year plan for aligning the efforts of all stakeholders to reduce the number of new HIV infections, increase access to care, and reduce HIV-related health disparities.  Mr. Crowley also worked on the policy team that spearheaded the development and implementation of the Affordable Care Act.  

This year's event will take place on Thursday, April 17, at the National Museum of Women in the Arts (1250 New York Avenue, NW) from 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.
