Medical AIDS Outreach of Alabama would like to announce the appointment of Michael Murphree as new Chief Executive Officer. Michael is certainly no stranger to MAO with a 16 year track record of working within the organization before leaving in December of 2010 to work on new projects. During that interim, he was able to expand his advocacy and networking resources immensely. Michael comes to Medical AIDS Outreach of Alabama following his service as the Executive Director of the Southern AIDS Coalition which reaches 16 states and the District of Columbia.
The great majority of Michael’s life has been spent living in rural areas of Alabama. Growing up in this environment led him to an extra sensitivity to the specific needs and cultural differences that rural communities present. He is a graduate of Auburn University at Montgomery and the University of Alabama. He received his Master of Social Worker degree in 1989, and is licensed at the LCSW level. With Michael’s extensive experience and knowledge of care, he is frequently requested to present on Social Work, Case Management, Mental Health and HIV issues at national, state and local conferences and programs.
We are privileged to welcome Michael home as he brings his experience and wide-spread influence to strengthen MAO’s mission and impact on the communities we live in and serve.
