Meet Our 2019-2020 Fellows!

 

Victoria Chew, DO
Dr. Victoria Chew is a proud native of San Francisco.  She graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz with degrees in biology and economics.  During that time, she became interested in healthcare and patient advocacy while volunteering at a local Planned Parenthood. Following graduation, she worked as a junior specialist in Neurobiology research and later as a medical assistant in San Francisco’s Chinatown district. 

Dr. Chew received her medical degree from Western University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in Pomona, CA and completed her Family Medicine Residency at Arnot Ogden Medical Center in Elmira, NY. During her residency, Dr. Chew developed an interest in HIV/ viral hepatitis medicine and LGBTQ care.  She hopes to use her fellowship training to provide comprehensive care across a broader group of patients in the community.

He graduated from NOVA Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL with a DO degree and drove across country to complete an internal medicine residency in Portland, Oregon. He has kept a passion for HIV and the LGBTQ population since medical school which has led him to pursue fellowship in HIV medicine. He and his husband keep 3 leopard geckos named Luna, Madam President, and Admiral Adama.





Craig Weeks, MD
"I am excited to return to my native New England to continue my postgraduate training as an HIV & Viral Hepatitis fellow!  After completing high school in Rhode Island, I pursued a BS in Biology from Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, NH.  I took some time to live and work in Europe before earning my MD from St. George’s University in Grenada, followed by a Family Medicine Residency in Midland, MI.  I have always had special interest in HIV and LGBTQ health, and my Residency’s unique four-year curriculum allowed me to explore electives in HIV and transgender medicine.  

Along with key administrators and staff members, we were able to establish an Inclusion & Diversity Council for the hospital system focusing on marginalized patients, especially those in the LGBTQ community.  More than anything, these rotations shined more light on the lack of LGBTQ, HIV and hepatitis clinicians in rural areas of the country.  In pursuing this Fellowship, I aim to bring competent, compassionate, and patient-centered care to these underserved populations."
