2013 Research in Action Awards
TAG's annual Research in Action Awards (RIAA) event honors activists, scientists, philanthropists, and creative artists who have made extraordinary contributions to the fight against AIDS. Resources raised at RIAA provide vital support for TAG’s programs throughout the year, and enable us to honor champions in the fight to end AIDS.

TAG is proud to present its 2013 Research in Action Awards to:
Anderson Cooper anchors Anderson Cooper 360° on CNN. During 2007 and 2008, he traveled around the world for Planet in Peril, a documentary about issues threatening the planet, its inhabitants, and its natural resources. Cooper is the host and executive producer of Anderson, a nationally syndicated daytime talk show. Cooper also reports for CBS’s 60 Minutes. Cooper has covered many important developments in the struggle against HIV/AIDS—including an hour-long feature on AIDS in America in 2011—and, more recently, a memorial for TAG’s first antiviral project director, Spencer Cox. Cooper has hosted the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) fall gala for seven years in a row. Cooper’s memoirs, Dispatches from the Edge, topped the New York Times best-seller list and other charts.
Anderson is one of three honorees. For further information on the event, please click on the above link.
