Hope's Voice International Executive Director Todd Murray Honored by HIV Plus Magazine
September 3, 2008 - In honor of the 10th year, HIV Plus honored their 10 most-admired leaders in the September 1st issue.
In reviewing the events of the pandemic, HIV Plus reflected on not only why the anti-AIDS movement has continually grown stronger since the first AIDS cases were discovered more than a quarter century ago but also why HIVers today are thriving in their daily lives more than ever before. While there were several parts to the answer, one factor stood out--the men and women who've inspired us, steered us through hard times, and led us to our victories.
The Executive Director of Hope's Voice International, Todd Murray, is featured on the cover of the issue and honored as one of the 10 most-admired leaders.
"I am deeply honored to be recognized as a leader with these incredible individuals that have made significant contributions in the HIV and AIDS epidemic. I share this honor with the ambassadors and speakers of Hope's Voice International that have committed their lives to end the stigma for all those living with HIV or AIDS. We look forward to reaching young people for another ten years," says Todd.
Todd's photos were taken by Mike Ruiz, a highly sought after celebrity photographer. "I would like to thank Mike for giving his time and passion to do the photo shoot. He is a wonderful friend and supporter of the work of Hope's Voice International," says Todd. Mike shot the Does HIV Look Like Me? Mexico print campaign and produced the promotional video. Watch your upcoming Does HIV Look Like Me? newsletter for the premier of the print campaign and promotional video.
