Academic Honors

Advancing HIV Care —Jason Leider, M.D., Ph.D., FACP, was named winner of the 2016 AAHIVM/Institute for Technology in Healthcare HIV Practice Award in recognition of his innovative use of technology in providing HIV care. Dr. Leider successfully faced the challenge of providing testing in the Bronx, a population that still faces high risks for the disease while still struggling to overcome significant barriers to testing, such as stigma, poor access to care and low literacy. Working with Yvette Calderon, M.D., Dr. Leider developed Project BRIEF (Behavior Intervention, Rapid HIV Test, Innovative Video, Efficient Cost and Healthcare Savings, Facilitated Seamless Linkage to Outpatient HIV Care), a model for testing linkage to care using public health advocates to counsel and test patients for HIV in the emergency department, on inpatients wards and at community pharmacies, and multimedia education. Dr. Leider is professor of clinical medicine at Einstein and an intern in Jacobi Medical Center’s Adult Comprehensive Services Clinic. Dr. Calderon is professor of clinical emergency medicine at Enstein and vice chair and director of emergency medicine at North Central Bronx Hospital.
