AVRC Researchers Honored at Annual Truax Awards

Connie Benson, MD and Susan Little, MD receive 2012 HIV Community Service Award

 

December 13, 2012 (SAN DIEGO) – On December 1, UC San Diego AntiViral Research Center faculty Connie Benson, MD and Susan Little, MD were each honored with the 2012 HIV Community Service Award at the Dr. A. Brad Truax Awards.

The annual recognition, hosted on World AIDS Day, honors the memory of A. Brad Truax, MD, one of the first physicians in San Diego to treat people with AIDS and the first chair of the first advisory board on HIV/AIDS in San Diego County. Through his tireless dedication to prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS, Truax encouraged people with different interests and agendas to work together to achieve goals for the benefit of the San Diego HIV/AIDS community.

In this spirit, the HIV Community Service Award recognizes exceptional contributions made to HIV efforts by individuals through their outstanding service in HIV education, prevention and/or counseling and testing; HIV care, treatment and/or support services for persons living with HIV/AIDS; and planning, advocacy or policy development, with special recognition to those who provide significant service to the community.

The Truax Awards is sponsored by the HIV Prevention Community Planning Group and the HIV Health Services Planning Council.
