“Trillium Health applauds Governor Hochul’s appointment of Dr. Mary T. Bassett as the Commissioner at the NYS Department of Health. Dr. Bassett’s commitment to addressing health disparities, global HIV equity, and harm reduction is closely in line with our mission, vision, and values. Throughout her career, she has demonstrated her commitment health equity, spending 17 years in Zimbabwe focused on the prevention of HIV/AIDS, and most recently, serving as the director of the François-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University (an HIV equity organization for children with AIDS). We look forward to working with Dr. Bassett to address health inequities among the most vulnerable populations, and continuing Trillium Health’s legacy in the fight against HIV.”
