Daniel Tietz has served as Executive Director of the AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA) since March 2006.  A registered nurse and lawyer, Tietz previously has worked with the Coalition for the Homeless, Housing Works, and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) at the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health.  In addition, Tietz has long-advocated on behalf of LGBT rights and social justice issues through independent political activity, including campaign management.

Founded in 1991 in response to the slow pace of government and academic research on HIV, ACRIA brought for the first time an activist, community-based approach to the study of new treatments for HIV and related diseases, such as viral hepatitis.  In addition to drug trials and behavioral research, ACRIA also offers a comprehensive HIV health literacy program, including training and capacity building services, materials development, consulting, and program evaluation.

Our Cosponsors: Center for HIV Identification, Prevention and Treatment Services, Bruin Resource Center, Community Programs Office, David Geffen School of Medicine and the UCLA Career Center.
