Wayne Hawley
Conflict of Interests Board of the City of New York
New York, NY

Dear Mr. Hawley,

This letter is a follow-up to our phone conversation this morning.

I am formally requesting that you investigate whether New York City's Health Commissioner, Dr. Thomas Frieden, has in any way violated Chapter 68 of the city's charter, which lays out rules for ethical conduct by public officials.

Dr. Frieden presently is a member of the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center's board of directors. (Source: )

Since Dr. Frieden and his department of health have various medical and business relationships with the center, which directly impact public health and social policies of the city, I ask that the Conflict of Interests Board examine his relationship with the center.

A prompt response is requested and appreciated.
