This exquisitely beautiful building was opened by MASS Design Group, a not-for-profit firm in Boston, and it is setting a new paradigm in solution-based design in medical center architecture. Providing care for HIV/AIDS since 1982, GHESKIO (Haitian Group for the Study of Kaposi's Sarcoma and Opportunistic Infections) was pioneered by Weill Department of Medicine faculty members, Dr. Jean W. Pape and Dr. Warren D. Johnson, Jr.
With their son about to go off to college, Mr. Steve Newhouse and his wife, Ms. Gina Sanders, began to plan for a trip to Bhutan and China. Before leaving, Mr. Newhouse met with Dr. Henry Murray, co-founder of the Weill Cornell Travel Clinic, to ensure that he received any necessary pre-travel vaccines. All was in order, but the best laid plans were sidelined by something completely unexpected – a dog bite.
Whether planning to travel for pleasure, work, or embarking on a humanitarian mission, it is vital to make a "first stop" with a travel medicine expert prior to leaving in order to ensure a safe and healthy trip. Since its inception in 1980, the Division of Infectious Diseases has been home to a premier clinic that serves this purpose.
This award recognizes one physician annually who provides outstanding leadership and who inspires members of their team to provide excellent, compassionate, and responsible care for patients and their families.
