Vermont: HIV/AIDS Comprehensive Care Clinics Celebrate 25th Anniversary
December 11, 2012
Patients with HIV/AIDS in Vermont have received state-of-the-art care through the Comprehensive Care Clinics (CCC) for 25 years under the leadership of Christopher Grace, MD., professor of medicine and director of infectious diseases at the University of Vermont/Fletcher Allen Health Care, and Deborah Kutzko, nurse practitioner and leader of the clinic program. The clinic also employs a team of providers, nurses, social workers, and a dietitian and psychiatrist. The HIV/AIDS comprehensive care clinics were established in 1987. According to Melissa Farr, Vermont Cares Services program director, at that time, the establishment of a long-term clinical program to treat HIV was a heroic act, but because of the strong network of HIV care and treatment that distinguishes CCC, persons with HIV/AIDS in Vermont are living longer, healthier lives.
