Gregorio (Greg) Millett is a senior scholar at the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law.

He is also a vice president at amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research, and the director of amfAR’s Public Policy Office. Millett is a former senior scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as a former senior policy advisor in the White House Domestic Policy Council, where he helped author and implement President Obama’s original National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

Millett is nationally recognized for his research on health inequities and is credited with helping to expose the limits of risk-based explanations for HIV-related disparities among African American and Latinx communities. He has multiple first-author publications in top medical, public health and policy journals, including JAMA, The Lancet, BMJ, Health Affairs, and AJPH. Millett’s scientific work has been used and cited in a range of publications from the National Academy of Sciences to the New York Times to an amicus curiae brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court in support of marriage equality.

In early 2020, Millett and his team provided the first national overview of COVID-19’s impact on Black and Latinx communities. These research findings were widely reported across print and televised media and utilized in Congressional hearings that aimed to remedy COVID-19 health inequities.

He is an alumnus of Dartmouth College and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
