Susan Cu-Uvin, director of the Immunology Center at Miriam Hospital in Providence, R.I., and associate professor in obstetrics and gynecology and medicine at Brown Medical School, has been selected as the 2005 recipient of the Constance B. Wofsky Women's Health Investigators Award, given by annually by the Adult AIDS Clinical Trials Group. Cu-Uvin was honored for her efforts in the advancement of clinical care and research for HIV-positive women. The award was presented at the December meeting of the Adult AIDS Clinical Trials Group.

Cu-Uvin established the HIV Menopause Clinic at Miriam Hospital to treat those who were living long enough to experience the natural side effects of menopause. In addition to her work in Providence, Cu-Uvin is active in training international HIV physicians and researchers. She helped to establish a HIV Women's Clinic in Cambodia, where she trains health care workers on treatment options and how to apply for grants and conduct research studies relevant to HIV-positive women.

Cu-Uvin and her work with the HIV Menopause Clinic was featured in a May 2005 cover story in The Advocate's sister publication HIV Plus. (
