University of Pennsylvania
I recently gave a talk to the students, faculty and staff in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. The subject was Juneteenth, and I used my life experiences to help the audience understand the lessons Juneteenth teaches. I'm passionate about using his voice to create a space for meaningful dialogue and progress.
Op Ed About Blood Donations
As a gay man living in the United States, I have been acutely aware of the FDA’s policy limiting blood donations from men who have sex with men. This policy is outdated and discriminatory. I wrote an OpEd about this policy, calling for the FDA to take action and change their policy to one based on science, not prejudice.
