Hello! I work for the John G Bartlett Specialty Practice. We work hard to provide comprehensive treatment to patient living with HIV/AIDS in the Baltimore area and also preventative care to those at risk of getting infected. The funds raised from this walk will help support our, an other health care organizations in Baltimore, efforts to provide these crucial services.
Below is more information about the John G Bartlett Specialty Practice:
The John G Bartlett Specialty Practice is named in honor of Dr. John G. Bartlett, an infectious disease doctor who previously worked at Johns Hopkins and was a champion for people living with HIV/AIDS in the early days of the epidemic. The state of the art facility, which opened in 2017, includes over 24 exam rooms and brings together a multidisciplinary team from the previous Moore Clinic, Blalock Clinic, various outpatient clinics. This practice co-locates services for patients with an array of infectious diseases including infections obtained after transplantation or on medical devices, HIV, hepatitis, general infectious diseases (such as fever of unknown origin, bone infections, lung infections or patients on IV antibiotics), and PrEP (HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis) treatment and care.
The practice site location provides street-level access to an onsite pharmacy, phlebotomy services, HCV and HIV counseling and testing services, and social services and case management alongside the various multidisciplinary sub-specialists within the clinic for patients. The practice also offers support groups, access to clinical trials, liver elastography, pentamidine inhalation and sputum induction room, and a treatment room.
