Public Health in Action: Dr. Demetre Daskalakis
excellent article in The Atlantic on Demetre Daskalakis, MD, MPH. He's an infectious diseases doctor, former ID fellowship director at NYU, former faculty member at Mt. Sinai, and now the Assistant Commissioner of the New York City Department of Public Health. He describes himself as an activist clinician providing cutting edge care and prevention to a very marginalized population of HIV positive and negative men who have sex with men. He's become well known for his creative interventions utilizing social media, as well as old fashioned public health in the trenches. It's worth a read.
