About the Author
Joel Gallant, MD, MPH is Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland and Associate Director of the Johns Hopkins AIDS Service. Dr. Gallant is an infectious disease specialist with expertise in HIV infection and AIDS. He studied medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, completed his internal medicine training at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and his infectious disease fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he now cares for hundreds of HIV-positive patients and conducts clinical trials on new treatments for HIV infection. Dr. Gallant, who received the HIV Clinical Education Award from the HIV Medical Association in 2006, is internationally recognized for his ability to communicate new research developments and treatment strategies to both professional and lay audiences. He is also the coauthor, with John G. Bartlett, of Medical Management of HIV Infection, and he conducts web-based question-and-answer forums for clinicians and patients on the Hopkins HIV Guide.
Top Customer Reviews
Having said all that, I found the information in the book great and the 'clinical' aspect does help in that regard. I recommend reading this book as well as reading The first year: HIV by Brett Grodeck which is more 'personal' and comes from someone who has HIV for over 20 years.
The author here certainly is highly knowledgeable in the subject as he has been involved with HIV patients from the beginning of the epidemic so I appreciate his point of view immensely. It was just the way the book was written that I found occasionally annoying.
The book is beautifully crafted to invite the reader to take one's time to digest the medical terms that are not part of everyone's lexicon. It's a smooth handling of a devastating disease.
Before reading this timely book, I thought I 'knew' all there was to know, from a patient's point of view. Of course, I was wrong...and 'that's' GOOD NEWS!
In addition to providing the latest scientific and medical information, Dr. Gallant has succeeded in stressing how hopeful the future can be.
I strongly recommend this book for anyone or organization dealing with the complex reality of this horrendous disease.
This book is a great choice for workshops, clinics, caregivers (spiritual and physical), and, of course, the individual confronting the disease first hand.
