The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation is putting together its program for an in-person gala to be held on Sept. 17 in West Hollywood.
Headlining the honoree’s list will be Dr. Anthony Fauci, a veteran HIV/AIDS researcher who serves as director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, amfAR (the Foundation for AIDS Research), and Sandra Thurman, chief strategy officer in the U.S. State Department’s Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and Health Diplomacy who also serves faculty role at Emory University.
