Book Reviews & Awards

“In many ways, Harry Haverkos was ideally suited to confront this new challenge. He had excellent training in infectious diseases and internal medicine and he was one of only a handful of physicians in the world at the time that had cared for a patient with this condition. Additionally, he brought energy, motivation, and an endlessly inquisitive mind to the Task Force. His impatience to solve the problem was laudable and inspiring.”—James W. Curran, M.D., M.P.H., dean, Rollins School of Public Health and co-director, Center for AIDS Research, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia
