At the 2012 OHTN Research Conference we celebrated the excellence, leadership, courage and dedication exemplified by honorary OHTN Board member Jay Browne. The award was presented by Frank McGee, Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, and Sean B. Rourke, Scientific and Executive Director, OHTN.
Jay Browne received his Masters in Social Work from Ohio State University and a Ph.D. in interdisciplinary studies (sociology, community health, applied psychology and adult education) from the University of Toronto (OISE). Jay was Director of Social Work at Chedoke-McMaster Hospitals and held a faculty appointment in the Department of Psychiatry at McMaster University as an Associate Professor. As the Chair of the Ontario Public Education Panel on AIDS in the 1980s, Jay was instrumental in helping the Ontario government launch a very successful prevention/education campaign. Jay was a member of the Ontario AIDS Advisory Committee and coordinator of AIDS programs for Ontario. An inspirational force in the creation of the OHTN, Jay briefly served as the OHTN's interim executive director, and continues to advise the OHTN as an honorary director.
