Mardge Cohen to be honored at the annual Debs-Thomas-Harrington

When Mardge Cohen and her partner Gordy Schiff left Chicago for Boston, they were warned that their old friends in the Windy City would do what was necessary to drag them back here.

Mardge is one of the world's leading experts on the treatment of HIV/AIDS and a former CWLU member. Gordy is a prof at Harvard and has written extensively on patient safety.
