Dr. Anitra Denison, Perinatal HIV Director for Washington DC, inducted into the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude in May 2015 for her compelling work ito assure women living with HIV, particularly those who are pregnant, are connected to and receive the highest quality of care. Following several babies being born with HIV in the District, Dr. Denson led the efforts to implementing a case review, including the mother’s perspective, to understand and correct the gaps in the medical and social service system. Dr. Denson is readily available for consultation and advocates for comprehensive services for women in the District. Dr. Denson is caped here by fellow SuperShero Caroline Watson.
About the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude!
“The plain fact is that the world does not need more successful people, but it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane.” David Orr
I deeply admire those who “live well in their places.” The ordinary and the unsung who offer to the world the very best parts of themselves without expectation. This is a beautiful expression of love in her calm, persistent, generous manner – offering a ripple of change (a metamorphosis) to the world. Inductees to the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude are caped in recognition of their contributions to a love-filled world.
