    CORAL GABLES, Fla. (November 11, 2014)—The Association of Nurses in AIDS Care has honored UM President Donna E. Shalala with its 2014 ANAC Public Service Award for her leadership on behalf of the millions of nurses in the U.S. and the millions of Americans living with and at risk for HIV.

    “ANAC’s Board of Directors applauds and admires Dr. Shalala’s leadership on issues important to the HIV nursing community,” said ANAC Executive Director Kimberly Carbaugh. “From her tenure as Secretary of Health and Human Services to her leadership positions at several universities, she has demonstrated a commitment to advocating for civil and human rights. Her outstanding career is marked by a longstanding and unwavering commitment to anti-discrimination and ensuring equitable access to education and health.”

    Shalala, who chaired the Institute of Medicine’s seminal report on “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health,” received the award after delivering the keynote address at the ANAC’s 2014 conference, “Navigating a Path Towards an AIDS Free Generation.”  The annual meeting was held in Miami November 6-8.

    Past recipients of the prestigious award, which is bestowed by the ANAC’s Board of Directors, have included President Barack Obama, the late U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy, U.S. Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters, and the late Johnathan Mann, former head of the World Health Organization’s global AIDS program.

    With a highly regarded peer-reviewed journal and more than 46 local chapters, the ANAC is the nation’s preeminent nursing organization responding to HIV/AIDS. It was founded in 1987.
