Britten Ginsburg Pund ’06 wins ADAP leadership award
The AIDS Drug Assistance Program, which provides medications for the treatment of HIV disease, named Pund its Champion of the Year.
Britten Pund ‘06, who works with the National Alliance of State & Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD), was recognized for her leadership in improving access to care and treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS. She has been named the Champion of the Year by the AIDS Drug Assistance Program.
Pund, who graduated with a bachelor's in human service studies, is director of the NASTAD Health Care Access team. The NASTAD is a nonprofit organization that represents the nation's leading officials responsible for administering HIV/AIDS and viral hepatitis care, prevention and education, and supports state health programs.
This is the most recent award for Pund, who previously received an Elon Young Alumna of the Year award in 2013, a Distinguished Alumni Award from Elon College, the College of Arts and Sciences, in 2012, and was named an “AIDS Hero” in 2010 by Housing Works, a national nonprofit.
A strong supporter of Elon, Pund has been a volunteer for the university since 2010, having served as a member and president of the Young Alumni Council, which strengthens connections between young alumni and the university. In 2012 Pund and her husband, Zachary Pund '05, began a scholarship for individuals conducting research in Elon's Department of Human Services. Additionally, both are members of the Elon Society, the university’s premier annual giving recognition society and the Order of the Oak, a society for donors who have named Elon as the beneficiary of a planned gift.
Pund’s deep involvement in Elon, through her roles and contributions, truly represents a relationship with the university as a partner, advocate and investor. The Pund family’s commitment to Elon continues with Zachary Pund, also a former Young Alumni Council member, who currently serves on the Phoenix Club Advisory Board. The couple lives in Ellicott City, Maryland, with their three children.
