Carl Sciortino is the Executive Vice President of External Relations. From 2014 to 2018, he served as Executive Director of AIDS Action Committee, New England’s oldest and largest AIDS service organization. As AIDS Action’s first Executive Director to be a person living with HIV himself, Sciortino led the creation of the statewide Getting to Zero Coalition, and continues to serve as its co-chair.
Prior to joining Fenway, Sciortino was a State Representative in the Massachusetts Legislature. He was a leading HIV and LGBT advocate in the House. He championed funding for HIV-related services and authored legislation banning transgender discrimination and LGBT conversion therapy, and a first-in-the nation law that requires insurance companies to cover the treatment of lipodystrophy, a side effect of early HIV medications. He first got elected in an effort to protect same-sex marriage equality, and has dedicated himself to social and economic justice issues throughout his career.
Sciortino received his Masters in Public Administration at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and his Bachelor of Science from Tufts University.
