Dr. Marcelo Venegas-Pizarro

About Me

I am the Regional Medical Director of the AHF's Northern Bureau. I provide care at AHF Healthcare Center - Chelsea. I have worked in the HIV field for 17 years and have seen the changes in care from toxic, debilitating anti-retrovirals to single tablet regimens with little to no side effects. I have also witnessed the issues of mental health and drug use that resulted in many patients passing away. There is a huge health disparity in HIV along race, gender and sexual orientation lines.

Fun Fact: I enjoy reading and running.
