"I have watched Gillian’s community involvement grow and deepen over the years. Among her many contributions, the one that always stood out for me was her dedication to educating policy makers and the public about substance use and harm reduction initiatives in her role as chair of Keeping the Door Open: Dialogues on Drug Use. She is knowledgeable and respected, and has become a popular presenter at international HIV/AIDS and drug policy events. Gillian is a great example of how each one us can channel our passion, creativity and compassion in a way that can help us make a difference."
