Michael Kaplan President and CEO AIDS United For AIDS United President and CEO Michael Kaplan, working in HIV/AIDS is not just a job, it is a life calling. A calling that he has had since shortly after testing positive for HIV in 1992, when he was just 23 years old. Just finishing up his graduate degree at the time of his HIV diagnosis, Kaplan decided he wanted to focus on issues related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) youth. But with time, he realized that he could not focus on LGBTQ youth without addressing HIV, which has disproportionately impacted the community since the epidemic's beginning. Kaplan has served as AIDS United's President and CEO since December 1, 2012. Prior to AIDS United, he was the Executive Director of Cascade AIDS Project (CAP), the largest and oldest AIDS service organization serving Oregon and South West Washington. During his four year tenure at CAP, Kaplan led the organization through a re-organization that resulted in reduced operating costs, expanded programming and increased revenue through fundraising and development efforts. Under his leadership, CAP was rated by its employees as one of the best 100 non-profits to work for in Oregon in 2010, 2011 & 2012. Kaplan's previous work has included several senior management positions at the Academy for Educational Development (AED), including Vice President for International HIV/AIDS Programs. His work in the LGBTQ community included Deputy Director of the National Youth Advocacy Coalition in Washington, D.C., and founding Executive Director of District 202 in Minneapolis, MN, a youth center by and for LGBTQ youth. He has served on the Board of Directors of several organizations focusing on everything from HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ issues, to behavior health care and nonprofit management. Kaplan is encouraged by the recent advances that are being made in the HIV field, and is more determined than ever to ensuring that those advances are advocated for, promoted and implemented. [cached]

Patient Advocate Michael Kaplan to Lead Melanoma Research Alliance
Named head of leading private funder of global melanoma research May 17, 2016 12:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA), the world's largest private funder of melanoma research, today named Michael Kaplan as its new leader. For the past 20 years, Kaplan has headed various nonprofits and patient advocacy groups, including his most recent position as President and CEO of Washington, DC-based AIDS United. He will assume the role of MRA's president and CEO effective July 5. "Michael has a proven record as a passionate supporter of health research and policy and as a seasoned nonprofit manager. There is so much work to still be done in this space, and we are excited for Michael to bring his experience to this arena." "MRA has in its relatively short history established itself as a vital leader in promoting treatments and advancing studies to cure melanoma, a deadly cancer that until only recently has begun to show some progress in its management," said Kaplan. "I am excited and pleased to have this opportunity to join MRA and help advance its critical agenda, particularly at this pivotal time in cancer research." Prior to joining AIDS United, Kaplan held leadership positions at Cascade AIDS Project in Portland, Ore., and the Academy for Educational Development, Futures Group International and the National Youth Advocacy Coalition in Washington, DC. He has served on the boards of several organizations focusing on health issues from HIV/AIDS to behavioral health.

PrEP will be part of ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic-but only if we can implement it widely," said Michael Kaplan, President and CEO of AIDS United.
