Clinic Administrator

Alex Moreno, MPH

Alex Moreno has served as the Clinical Program Manager of ACTS since 2004. Fell into this field of work after losing friends to the HIV/AIDS pandemic by producing a rock video called The Gift by singer/songwriter Diane Ward. Stayed in this much needed cause because he is sick of seeing data that shows Miami is #1 in the nation in HIV infection rates. When not working he is the proud dad of his daughter Ava.

Podemos comenzar definiendo que es el COVID-19. Este es un grupo de corona viruses Que es causada por el syndrome respiratorio agudo severo tipo 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Este virus se transmite de persona a persona atravéz de gotas en el aire. Este puede causar desde síntomas muy leves a síntomas severos llegando a escalar hasta la muerte. Es un virus tan nuevo del que aún no poseemos la información suficiente para saber como curarlo. Hasta el día de hoy muchos cientícos estan trabajando duramente para buscar una vacuna a la vez de mejors y mas efectivas maneras de tartar a pacientes que contrageron este virus. Nadie esta preparado para una pandemia. El sistema de salud  en los Estados Unidos lo demostro. Esta pandemia a sacado a flote muchas de las inconsistencias que el mundo entero enfreta en distintos ambitos.
