Amida Care President and CEO Doug Wirth Named to City & State’s Pride Power 100
June 21 2021
Doug Wirth, President and CEO of Amida Care, has been named among the 2021 City & State New York Pride Power 100. The feature published in City & State on June 21 refers to Doug as “a warrior in New York’s battle against HIV/AIDS.” The annual list names the 100 most notable individuals who are standing up for LGBTQ rights, including elected and appointed officials, business executives, nonprofit leaders, advocates, activists, academics and consultants. Amida Care congratulates Doug on this recognition of his strong leadership in fighting for LGBTQ rights and health care access.
Though there has been progress in the past year in regard to legal protections in the LGBTQ community, there is still much work to be done, nationally and here in New York. For the fifth year, City & State New York honors the remarkable individuals standing up for LGBTQ rights on the frontlines of these battles. The honorees will be recognized during an online celebration on Wednesday, June 23, from 5-6 pm.
