We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Anthony Fauci is the 2021 recipient of the Ryan White Distinguished Leadership Award. The honor will be presented in a virtual ceremony beginning at 5:15 EST on December 6, 2021. Registration is available at go.iu.edu/3Su6.
Since 2009, the Rural Center for AIDS/STD Prevention (RCAP) has presented this distinction annually to "an exemplary bearer of the standard of excellence and commitment needed to combat HIV/AIDS." The 2020 honoree was Dr. Joycelyn Elders. Other recipients include Greg Louganis and former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. C. Everett Koop. The first recipient, Ryan White's mother Jeanne White-Ginder, speaks each year at the ceremony, along with RCAP Director William L. Yarber.
