The wait is over

After two weeks of living with a cast that ran from my left shoulder to nearly my finger tips, the shackle has been removed; and I am free at last. I met with my orthopedist, Dr. Delaney, and he removed that plaster loaf of bread from my arm and replaced it with a very fashionable metal splint. It has a hinge guard at the elbow so that I can’t extend my arm fully. It looks very cyborg-esque. I’m loving it. But what I love more than anything else is that I am able to type and exam patients with both hands.

It really is true what they say about taking the little things for granted. Who knew I would miss my left arm of all things.

On a completely different note, I am proud to announce that Here Media and will announce a new partnership encouraging living healthy with HIV.

“The campaign begins Tuesday, September 15th, and includes an on-line video series titled “Ask the Doctor,” featuring popular doctor, author and health expert Dr. Frank Spinelli (The Advocate Guide to Gay Men’s Health and Wellness).”


Four segments were filmed earlier this week. My guests included: The Center’s Associate Director of Center CARE Wellness, Andrés Hoyos, and the Director of Mental Health, Katie Douglass from Callen-Lorde Community Health Center’s.

I will be sure to keep you posted on when the videos are available on in September.  In the meantime, check out these community resources:
