CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AHF–AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF)

healthcare provider team. She will be serving patients at AHF’s Hyde
Park Healthcare Center at 1515 E. 52nd Place and its South Side
location at 2600 S. Michigan Ave that also includes a Wellness
Clinic for walk-in STD testing.


Dr. Wilson is a graduate of Tennessee State University in Nashville, TN

Chicago before joining Christian Community Health Center in 2014. Since
2015, Dr. Wilson has provided care at a private practice in Avondale.

“I am so excited to join AHF and continue providing exceptional care to
Chicago’s LGBT community and people living with HIV/AIDS,” said Dr.
Wilson
. “My goal is to help our patients achieve complete total
wellness in their lives and empower them to stay in treatment and keep a
positive attitude about their futures.”

internationally, we are honored when we can have experienced and
highly-regarded doctors like Dr. Wilson join our family to provide
exceptional care to our patients,” said Donna Tempesta, vice
president of AHF’s Northern Region. “Dr. Wilson’s appointment is also
significant for AHF because it allows us to continue to leverage our
local presence and expand our services to areas of greatest need in the
Chicago area.”

According to the City
of Chicago’s Department of Public Health 2015 HIV/STI Surveillance Report
,
the most recent report, while new HIV infection diagnoses are declining
overall in Chicago, blacks and Latinos still have a higher new HIV
infection rate than white residents. Also, since 2010, non-Hispanic
Whites and Hispanics have accounted for increasing proportions of
gonorrhea infections and primary and secondary syphilis cases.
