Gregg is the Personnel and Marketing Director for Safemed Pharmacy in Dallas and lives with his partner of twenty + years, Richard Allen, and has five fuzzy children—dogs, that is!

Piper Duarte, Governance Committee Chair

Piper oversees Clinical Quality Management for Parkland’s HIV Services Department, a Ryan White clinic system serving over 6000 clients.

She is honored to serve on the Board for AIN and shares the agency’s vision to offer hope and help create a world without HIV/AIDS.

Joleen Ford

Ten years ago Joleen began her relationship with AIN as a volunteer, which quickly turned into a position on staff where she was responsible for educating vulnerable populations about HIV/AIDS. Joleen also served as Coordinator of the Daire Center & worked in the Development Department, and now serves as a member of AIN’s Board of Directors. Says Joleen, “What I thought would be a quick 6 month volunteer experience ended up being a life changer. It is an honor to witness the growth of the agency.”
