Gina Brown provides medical services to HIV-positive men and women as a medical case manager at Priority Health Care Inc., a nonprofit in the New Orleans area that provides care and seeks to empower underserved populations.

Poz for two decades, Brown has been working in the HIV field for a dozen years and has become a valued advocate and speaker.
