Dec. 1 is World AIDS Day, a day to unite in the fight to end the HIV epidemic, support people living with HIV, and honor those who have lost their lives. Fittingly, it’s also Arduino’s 30th anniversary at UTHealth, where he serves as professor of infectious diseases at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth. He is also the site leader for the National Institutes of Health-funded Houston AIDS Research Team, which participates in two HIV/AIDS clinical trials networks at Thomas Street Health Center. The team conducts clinical trials to assess the efficacy of new drugs for people with HIV, as well as test methods to prevent HIV transmission and community spread. The Houston AIDS Research Team has been continuously funded by the NIH for 20 years, bringing in more than $29 million in grants to serve the community.

“I don’t feel so great,” my husband, Brandon, said to me one Saturday afternoon – the last thing I wanted to hear after spending the last seven months tuned into COVID-19 media coverage. Knowing a few of his co-workers had recently tested positive for the virus, we didn’t wait to secure an appointment for a rapid test. When he called me an hour later to tell me he has tested positive, my heart sank.
