Jeffrey Crowley is the Program Director of Infectious Disease Initiatives at the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law and Distinguished Scholar. Professor Crowley is a widely recognized expert on HIV/AIDS and disability policy. From February 2009 through December 2011, he served as the Director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy and Senior Advisor on Disability Policy for President Barack Obama. In this capacity, he led the development of our country's first domestic National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States, a five-year plan for aligning the efforts of all stakeholders to reduce the number of new HIV infections, increase access to care, and reduce HIV-related health disparities. The Strategy continues to guide the Administration's efforts in this area. He also coordinated disability policy development for the Domestic Policy Council and worked on the policy team that spearheaded the development and implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

From 2000 through 2009, Professor Crowley was a Senior Research Scholar at the Georgetown University Health Policy Institute and he received a concurrent appointment as Senior Scholar at the O’Neill Institute shortly after the institute was established. During this time, his research covered a range of health policy issues with an emphasis on Medicaid and Medicare policy, especially as these programs impact people with HIV and other disabilities. He has also served as an informal resource and counsel for Congressional staff and he advised national consumer coalitions, including the HIV Health Care Access Working Group and the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities. From 1994 through 2000, he served in various leadership roles at the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA), most recently as Deputy Executive Director for Programs.

Professor Crowley received his Master of Public Health from the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health, and his Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry from Kalamazoo College. He is an alumnus of the United States Peace Corps where he served as a Volunteer/High School Science Teacher in Swaziland.
