The legacy left by Ryan White, a standard-bearer in the fight against HIV and a former patient of this practice, is still felt today as faculty care for patients at the Ryan White Center for Pediatric Infectious Disease and Global Health at Riley Hospital for Children. Other clinical sites include IU Health North Hospital and IU Health Arnett Hospital in Lafayette.
