Cori Blum, MD, AAHIVS, of the Chicago Dept. of Public Health, chats with HIVE’s Shannon Weber about working with men living with HIV and building families. Dr. Blum says, when she first started becoming a provider for men, some of her patients (who were living with HIV),

“started having conversations with me and expressing that they were interested in having babies or building families. These were [primarily] young, gay-identified, African-American men, who I wouldn’t necessarily have thought at the time, ‘Oh, I need to be talking to these young men about family planning.’ But they brought these issues to me.”
