Jason Leider Biography

Associate Director of HIV services
Phone: 718-918-3669

My academic interest include HIV and HCV testing, prevention and treatment.
Most recently, I have been serving on the NIH-sponsored HPTN 065 trials as a protocol committee member, specifically addressing issues concerning linkage to care.  I have collaborated with Dr. Calderon and the DOH on several projects that have led to publications in peer-reviewed journals.  With Dr. Calderon, I have developed and managed Project BRIEF, an HIV testing and counseling program that has tested over 60,000 patients in the Bronx, N.Y. and has linkage over 85% of the newly identified HIV+ patients.
