NY Gov-Elect Taps Latino Leader For Transition

  Guillermo Chacon, President of the Latino Commission on AIDS Joins Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo’s Transition Team on Health & Education

 


NEW YORK  – Guillermo Chacon, President of the Latino Commission on AIDS, has been named to Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo’s Health & Education Transition Team. Guillermo Chacon is recognized in New York State for his ability to develop strong networks and mobilize Latino communities on HIV/AIDS, health policy issues and program levels. Among many other achievements, he pioneered the New York Latino/Hispanic HIV/AIDS agenda and regional leadership training initiatives with community partners– a New York State agenda setting process that shaped a comprehensive response to the HIV/AIDS crisis among Hispanics.
 
“New York State faces health and educational challenges that calls for new strategies and new leadership opportunities in order to move forward,” states Guillermo Chacon, President of the Latino Commission on AIDS “I am honored and grateful to Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo, Lt. Governor Duffy and their team for inviting me to participate with the health transition effort, and I look forward to contributing my perspective, strategies and recommendations of the new administration for the well being of all New Yorkers.”

Our State needs to be a leader on health and education during these difficult times. Supporting healthy communities and being a leader in education is one of the most important challenges for the new administration.  

The Latino Commission on AIDS looks forward to working with and supporting Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo and his entire team to assist in recruiting and retaining the best talent for these areas, strengthening our health and educational system, and making smart decisions to benefit our urban and rural communities across our beautiful New York State.
