Board Chair's Award

About Wakefield

An activist since the age of eight when he joined Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Operation Breadbasket in Chicago, Wakefield has spent much of his adult life serving those with HIV/AIDS and working to end the disease, including 20 years at the HIV Vaccine Trials Network based at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. 2021 GSBA Board Chair Jay Petterson would like to recognize Wakefield in particular for his tremendous contributions to GSBA's search for our new President & CEO, Michael Soto.
