The Division of Infectious Disease staff includes an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, social workers, pharmacists and advanced practice nurses,* all dedicated to improving the health of those living with acute and chronic infectious diseases.

We are concerned about both the medical aspects of infection and the impact of illness on the emotional wellbeing of patients and their families.
