My primary appointment is at the Parkland Amelia Court HIV Clinic, where I participate in both direct patient care and clinical trials. I am particularly interested in factors which may affect patient adherence to antiretroviral therapy, HIV lipodystrophic/lipoatrophic syndromes, substance abuse intervention strategies, and HIV prevention.
