In Memory of Dr. Bosco
Earlier this fall we lost a member of our DSMB, Dr. Bosco Bwana. Dr. Bosco, a leading physician scientist on HIV adherence and antiretroviral therapy, positively impacted thousands of individuals living with HIV in Uganda and abroad. As an educator, scientist, and physician, Dr. Bosco showed compassion in every aspect of his career. The URBAN ARCH family sends our heartfelt condolences to Dr. Bosco’s family and loved ones.
