About Me

I am the Medical Director of the AHF Healthcare Center – Fort Myers. I joined AHF without knowing its global reach or history. I joined because I was an independent contractor and was searching for my niche in the modern medical practice. HIV affected humanity (still does) like no other infectious problem in my life time, surely in the life time of most of us. Adversity is a true test of character and most of us were tested because of HIV. When I trained in Ethiopia too, there was no ART and I saw patients dying right and left and treating HIV patients is like my little “vendetta” against the virus. Since joining AHF 5 years ago, I still enjoy AHF’s giving back model which extends to many developing countries and that is one thing I can identify with.

Fun Fact: When I was in Ethiopia, I used to be a part-time columnist for a newspaper on health related issues (mostly HIV) and editor in chief of a monthly newspaper that dealt with a variety of health subjects. To this day, I still write. I write short stories and poems in my native language (Amharic). I have also completed 10 marathons and 1 half. I love soccer and used to be a goalie. If you want to catch me on my best behavior, reach me after Liverpool has won!
