Chapel Hill Town Councilman Lee Storrow takes a new title

Posted by on Fri, Sep 12, 2014 at 3:55 PM

Chapel Hill Town Councilman Lee Storrow has a new title.

Storrow has been named executive director of the N.C. Aids Action Network, an influential nonprofit that helps to promote advocacy and policy about the disease.

At 22 years old, Storrow was the youngest town councilman in two decades when he was elected in Chapel Hill in 2011. He'll assume leadership of an organization that, like many healthcare advocacy organizations in the state, has fought its fair share of legislative battles in recent years.

Last year, the organization was one of the loudest in the state in decrying Republican lawmakers' $8 million budget cut in assistance for purchasing HIV and AIDS medication. 

Storrow has a history as a healthcare advocate. For the last three years, he's been managing director of the N.C. Alliance for Health, a group promoting healthy living intended to reduce the effects of tobacco and obesity. 

He also worked for Ipas, an international organization promoting women's reproductive rights. He is an Asheville native and a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill.
