February 27, 2009
President Obama on Thursday named Jeffrey Crowley -- a senior research scholar at Georgetown University's Health Policy Institute and former deputy executive director for programs at the National Association of People with AIDS -- as the director of the Office of National AIDS Policy, the Washington Post's "Cast of Characters" reports. As director, Crowley will be responsible for coordinating the federal government's efforts in curbing the spread of HIV through education programs, in addition to coordinating treatment efforts for people living with the virus. He also will serve on the president's Domestic Policy Council and help guide the Obama Administration's disability policies. Obama said, "Crowley brings the experience and expertise that will help our nation address the ongoing HIV/AIDS crisis and help my administration develop policies that will serve Americans with disabilities" (Stein, "Cast of Characters," Washington Post, 2/26).
