District of Columbia: Whitman-Walker Clinic Leader Leaving
December 21, 2004
On Dec. 15, the Whitman-Walker Clinic's board announced the departure of Executive Director A. Cornelius Baker. Chairperson Billy Cox lauded Baker, 43, for his fight against HIV/AIDS and on behalf of the gay and lesbian community. A spokesperson said Roberta Geidner-Antoniotti, managing director of operations, would be interim director while the board conducts a national candidate search. Baker served as the clinic's executive director for five years. In a telephone interview, Baker said his years were "very difficult, challenging times," especially with the funding woes following the 2001 terrorist attacks.Adapted from:
