Dr. Shawn White Mural

Dr. Shawn White and I worked closely during his time with the University of Pennsylvania’s HIV Vaccine Trials Network Community Advisory Board.  He was completing his dissertation, as I was serving in my post graduate work program.  Day and night over the course of two months we worked to create increased buy-in and movement for social change in delivering interventions to the most deserving populations of Philadelphia.

I recently learned of his passing, but I wanted share his legacy of change and hope for tomorrow.  We all have the capacity for good in our hearts, and that yearning, we must pursue.

I recognize in those years, far too much of time went spent on work and not on relationships.  I have only begun to hear of all of Dr. White’s amazing work and musical talent.

Dr. White serves a model for social good.

His memory also serves as a lesson to focus not only facts but people. Let us be people and let us be people together.
