Tim Sullivan, current director of the St. Louis Effort for AIDS, has been named the new executive director of the Nebraska AIDS Project, the Omaha World-Herald reports. He will begin working with the Nebraska group in October. The AIDS Project's former director, Rich Santee, resigned in April following his arrest for lewd conduct. Earlier this year Sullivan was named to the Institute for HIV Prevention Leadership, a group sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Association of Schools of Public Health. AIDS Project board member and agency acting director John Weston said Sullivan's "national reputation in the battle against AIDS" played a key role in his being hired for the job.
