Luis Gonzalez Corro

Dr. Luis Gonzalez Corro was born and raised in rural Panama. At the age of 18, he won a full scholarship to study medicine in Havana, Cuba. Subsequently, he completed his residency in New York City in the Primary Care and Social Internal Medicine program at Montefiore/Albert Einstein in the Bronx. Luis’ research interests include access to HIV and Hepatitis C treatment for impoverished populations with substance use disorders, the use of social sciences frameworks such as Critical Race Praxis and Anti-racism in HIV care research, as well as the intersection of Community-Based Participatory Research, research-based advocacy, and their translation to policy. Given his lived experiences as an Afro-Latinx physician, Luis is committed to using medicine as a tool for advocacy, equity, and social justice.
