... to Nina Martinez for being named one of the POZ 100 for 2017.

The picture featured here is from an art exhibit on HIV criminalization that Nina participated in last year on World AIDS Day. During the exhibit she sat in an art piece called "Cages" which represents the layers of stigma felt by people living with HIV.

As she said in an email today: "[The POZ 100 piece went live] just 24 hours after losing my 33yo friend to Kaposi's. Bittersweet. Georgia must do more to save black gay men. We as a community need to do more to dismantle the depression that keeps people from engaging in self-care. We have to dismantle the layered stigmas that come with being people of color, gay, and HIV-positive. Can't ride the cascade of care if you don't even think it is worth embarking."

Any wonder POZ Magazine picked her to celebrate as one of their Top 100?

      Neale Weitzmann

Neale Weitzmann was promoted to the rank of Professor (SOM/Endocrinology) this year.

Neale's research interests are in picking apart the inner workings of a really nasty perfect storm ... i.e. the way that HIV, aging, and ART work synergistically to accelerate bone loss and form the groundwork for a looming epidemic of fragility fractures among Baby Boomers with HIV (R01AR068157).

Plus the role that IL-4 has in that process (R01AR070091).


Seven other CFARians were promoted to the rank of Associate Professor this year. We will be profiling each of them in the coming weeks
