Biographical Info

Dr. Ann Avery is an associate professor of medicine at Case Western Reserve University and practicing Infectious Disease physician at MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio.

She focuses on improving the lives of patients with or at risk for HIV utilizing a holistic approach of biomedical, social and structural interventions. Patients living with HIV (PLWH) or at risk for HIV are diverse and those with the greatest needs are often marginalized from the general population because of youthfulness, co-morbid mental health, substance use and/or incarceration. She has implemented novel multi-level ways to engage marginalized populations in the HIV care and prevention continuum including integration of HIV testing in a variety of settings, transforming mental health care for PLWH and developing a social media application to improve engagement among young persons living with HIV. She is the principal investigator for 2 ongoing HRSA HAB funded SPNS initiatives and one HRSA funded dissemination of evidence based interventions project.
