Your Health Matters Episode Ten: HIV and Diabetes

The discovery of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) as the main cause of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) led to a shift in health policies and the public understanding of the disease. Since then, a lot has changed in our strategies for testing, management, preventing long-term complications, and reducing the stigma associated with living with HIV.

Joining Dr. Viv today on the podcast to discuss the link between HIV and Diabetes is Family Nurse Practitioner Ikechukwu Nwosu. Ike has over seven years of experience in Primary Care, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, and Opioid abuse management. He works in a Federally Qualified Health Center in Washington, DC, that provides care for residents living in under-resourced communities.
