The Jonathan M. Mann Memorial Lecture is made possible annually by the CDC Foundation with proceeds from a generous grant provided by Richard E. Hoffman, MD, MPH of Denver, Colorado. In 1999, the lecture was established to honor Dr. Jonathan Mann, who lost his life in the Swissair plane crash off Nova Scotia in 1998. Dr. Mann was an accomplished state epidemiologist who was called the “architect of the global mobilization against AIDS” for his role as the founding director of the World Health Organization’s Global Program on AIDS.
