I have a long-standing interest in improving access to care for HIV-infected patients. I provide direct patient care three half-days per week; teach medical students, residents, fellows and other attending physicians how to provide this care; and lead an outgoing HIV-training program for social workers, nurses, medical students, residents, fellows and attending physicians. I am the principle investigator on the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resource Emergency (CARE) Act fund for Primary Care Part A and B, Women’s Health, Transportation, Food and Nutrition, and Nutrition Counseling. I have helped developed an electronic medical record and database specifically for HIV outpatient medical care.
My research interests include HIV infection and women, including menopause in HIV infected women and Pap smears and colposcopy in HIV infected women. I am also interested in the clinical manifestations of HIV infection and the side effects of antiretroviral therapy. I have been an active contributor to medical knowledge through published manuscripts, abstracts, reviews of infectious disease topics and textbook chapters.
