American Academy of HIV Medicine Recognizes Commitment of HIV Care Providers on World AIDS Day 2006
Statement of Brian Hujdich, Interim Executive Director, AAHIVM and Dr. Jeffrey Schouten, Chair, AAHIVM Board of Directors
December 1, 2006
On this World AIDS Day 2006, the American Academy of HIV Medicine honors the many in our nation and around the world that have lived with HIV. We also honor the many health care professionals that have provided care and treatment to their HIV-infected patients for more than 25 years. World AIDS Day 2006 reminds us that many first responders to the disease are retiring or leaving practice, and AAHIVM remains as committed as ever to advancing excellence in HIV care through the ongoing education of current providers, as well as the cultivation and support of new HIV care providers.
Today, the Academy's commitment to excellence is reflected in the commitment of the physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants who recently fulfilled the requirements of AAHIVM's 2006 credentialing program, including their successful completion of our rigorous credentialing exam, earning them the designation of HIV Specialist™ (AAHIVS). We congratulate them for their outstanding dedication to their patients and to HIV Medicine.
