( Chicago, IL, April 10, 2018 ) — TPAN announces today that it has hired Christopher Clark to serve as the organization's Chief Executive Officer. Clark will begin on April 30, 2018.

Clark joins TPAN following more than a decade of service at Lambda Legal, the national legal organization dedicated to achieving the full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and everyone living with HIV.

Since 2016, Clark has served as Lambda Legal's Midwest Regional Director, responsible for the management of the Chicago office and the coordination of fundraising and public policy strategies in a 10-state Midwest region. Prior to assuming that senior management position, Clark served as senior attorney and the organization's strategist for its work on behalf of students.

"Christopher Clark brings to TPAN a wealth of leadership and management experience as an advocate for people living with HIV," said TPAN's Board President, Michael Murphy. "The Board of Directors is thrilled that he is joining our team."

As an attorney at Lambda Legal, Clark litigated cases across the country on behalf of LGBT people and those affected with HIV. During his career, he successfully brought appeals before five different state supreme courts. In one notable case, he argued before the Iowa Supreme Court on behalf of an HIV-positive man unjustly convicted under the state's HIV criminalization law. Clark and the Lambda Legal team convinced the court to overturn the conviction.

In his management position, Clark developed a national pro bono project designed to develop relationships with law firms and attorneys across the country. He also coordinated the Chicago and Midwest fundraising efforts including high-profile ticketed events, individual and corporate solicitations and foundation grant proposals.

"TPAN provides critical education, testing, counseling, and case management to those affected by HIV who might not otherwise receive these lifesaving services," Clark said. "I am excited and honored to become a part of the passionate and dedicated staff."

TPAN, Test Positive Aware Network, provides services for those vulnerable to and living with HIV and related health conditions. Its mission is to save lives and empower those affected by HIV. Its national magazine, Positively Aware, is a trusted source of HIV treatment news.
