A Farewell Message from J. B. Molaghan

April 26, 2000

Dear Readers of the Body:

It is difficult to believe that the Fatigue and Anemia Forum was instituted about two years ago. During the past two years, it has been my privilege to be involved in this effort for expanded HIV education for people with fatigue and anemia.

I will be finishing my work at The Body on May 1, 2000. My current clinical responsibilities have increased, and I'm also starting some new projects here at the Positive Health Practice in San Francisco. The Fatigue and Anemia Forum will be taken over by Dr. Robert Frascino, a physician in private practice from San Jose, CA., who has a vast amount of experience with treatment and management of HIV disease.

Please continue to support The Body. I believe that this website has been an extremely valuable resource for both people living with HIV disease and healthcare providers alike.

I wish you all the best of luck in the future, and thank you for allowing me to provide you service over the past two years.


JB Molaghan NP
