Dr. Howard Grossman is a long-time leader in the areas of LGBT health and HIV medicine. He recently relocated to South Florida, to practice internal medicine at Cleveland Clinic’s West Palm Beach location.
In the early days of the AIDS epidemic, Dr. Grossman encountered some of the first cases of AIDS when he was a resident at Kings County Hospital, one of the largest public hospitals in New York City. Dr. Grossman continued working on the front lines of the epidemic when he later worked at the first dedicated AIDS unit in the country at St. Clare’s Hospital and entered private practice in 1987.
In addition to his work as a physician and an advocate, Dr. Grossman has written articles for many publications and websites, and has served as medical editor for columns in POZ, amfAR’s Treatment Insider, and others.
“I always felt that our greatest strength as a community has been the commitment of so many LGBT people to put themselves on the line in the struggle for equality,” Dr. Grossman said. “Especially in the area of improving access to healthcare for all.”
He has been involved in HIV research, prevention and advocacy, worked with many community-based organizations and looks forward to continuing this work in Florida.
