Speaker Bio
Dr. Chris Bositis works at the Greater Lawrence Family Health Center in Lawrence, MA, where he is clinical director of the HIV and viral hepatitis programs, and a core member of the Lawrence Family Medicine Residency faculty. He is a graduate of the Yale University School of Medicine, and did his family medicine residency at Brown University/Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island. As a family physician working with historically marginalized and underserved communities that have suffered disproportionately from the overlapping opioid and infectious disease syndemics, he is committed to implementing evidence-based approaches to reduce the burden of these diseases in the community and to providing holistic, compassionate care to individuals living with them. As such, he has played a key role in the development and implementation of novel programs at Greater Lawrence, including their community-based syringe service program; the mobile buprenorphine program for individuals experiencing homelessness; the inpatient HIV and addiction medicine consult services; and the HIV/viral hepatitis area of concentration, which prepares family medicine residents to join the shrinking HIV workforce.
