Founder, General & LGBTQ+ Healthcare and HIV Specialist
Over my career, I have taken on a variety of roles that underscore my commitment to a healthy world, including HIV/AIDS clinician, clinical researcher, lecturer, and humanitarian. While in medical school at the University of Miami in the early 1980s, I was inspired to become an infectious disease specialist due to the burgeoning national HIV crisis. I completed my residency training at Yale University and Greenwich Hospital Association and went on to receive additional credentialing from the American Academy of HIV Medicine. For more than 30 years, I have been treating individuals and entire communities around the world.
In addition to being the Chief Medical Officer here at HCAI, I also co-founded of HIV Advocates and founded the Zimbabwe AIDS Project (ZAP). I established ZAP following the successful treatment of an HIV-positive Zimbabwean couple who gave birth to an HIV-negative child in 2002 – years before prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) became the standard of care throughout the world.
