A New Year and a New Home for a Famed Alabama HIV Clinic

Alabama’s largest HIV care facility—the 1917 Clinic in Birmingham—has moved to a new location. Renamed the 1917 Clinic at Dewberry, the new site nearly triples the size of the clinic and offers clients an array of HIV services, including medical care, outreach, prevention and social services, according to an announcement from UAB Medicine. Part of the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine, the clinic was founded in 1988 and is named after its original street address. For more details, including its operating hours, visit the 1917 Clinic site. “Having been with the 1917 Clinic since it opened in 1988, I find it rewarding to see the remarkable progress that has been made in HIV care over the last three decades,” said Michael Saag, MD, founder of the 1917 Clinic, in a previous article about the new space.
