Ryan White Medical Providers Take to the Hill
Members of the Ryan White Medical Providers Coalition Steering Committee visited Capitol Hill on April 9 and 10 advocating for continued robust Ryan White funding as well as urging Congress to lift the ban on federal funding for syringe exchange programs. Ten clinician leaders representing seven states participated in nearly 40 congressional office visits. In addition, the group met with key Administration officials:  the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation; the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy; and the Director of the Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP). HIVMA created the Coalition to support Ryan White medical providers in delivering quality care to their patients.

Georgina Osorio, MD, MPH; Byrd Quinlivan, MD; Michelle Ogle, MD, FAAP;
and Jim Raper, PhD, CRNP, JD, travel to Capitol Hill to meet with their legislators.
