Dr. Gary Blick is the Founder of Health Care Advocates International and BEAT AIDS Project Zimbabwe, which he founded following successful treatment provided to an HIV-positive Zimbabwean couple that gave birth to an HIV-negative child in 2002, years before Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission (PMTCT) became the standard of care throughout the world. As a direct result, he is the proud godfather of his HIV-negative 15-year old godson in Victoria Falls Zimbabwe, where he built a state-of-the-art HIV and general medical clinic servicing over 8600 people in Zimbabwe.
As a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) in HIV and with his knowledge and interest in HIV and its effects on the human gut microbiome, he was recently appointed to be the Chief Medical Officer of Just Thrive Probiotics.
Dr. Blick is an internationally renowned HIV/AIDS clinician, clinical researcher, lecturer and humanitarian. His career in healthcare spans the length of more than 30 years, and was inspired by national health events occurring at the time of the early 1980s as he studied at the University of Miami Medical School. Set to become a plastic surgeon, he quickly changed educational direction after personally coming out as a gay man and witnessing the tragic and heart-wrenching effects of the early AIDS epidemic on the gay/bi-sexual, Haitian, recreational drug using, and hemophiliac communities.
Now, 30 years later, Dr. Blick remains on the cutting edge of HIV/AIDS care, having provided medical treatment to over 3,500 individuals living with HIV/AIDS and to members of the LGBTQ community in CT and the New England and Tri-State areas. He has been the Principal Investigator in more than 120 clinical research trials, and has authored or co-authored more than 190 medical manuscripts and scientific presentations/abstracts regarding therapies and treatments for those with HIV/AIDS. His work has been published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, Journal of AIDS, AIDS, Clinical Infectious Diseases, Jo
