CHERRY HILL, NJ (December 28, 2018) — David V. Condoluci, DO, MACOI, Senior Vice President and Chief Patient Safety & Quality Officer at Jefferson Health – New Jersey, was recently presented with the Teddy DePrince Award at the 29th Annual HIV Medical Update in Cherry Hill, NJ, in recognition of his continued commitment and compassion in addressing the needs of patients living with HIV/AIDS.
The Teddy DePrince Award is named in memory of a South Jersey resident who died in 2004 at age 24 due to complications of HIV/AIDS, which he contracted in the 1980s while undergoing blood transfusions to treat his hemophilia. DePrince’s two brothers, also hemophiliacs, similarly acquired HIV/AIDS and died in the early 1990s. Dr. Condoluci cared for Teddy and his brothers until their deaths.
“Dr. Condoluci epitomizes this award,” said Jefferson Health - New Jersey’s Medical Director of Infectious Diseases, Dr. Todd P. Levin. “He was selected as this year’s Teddy DePrince Award recipient to thank him for all those he has helped over his illustrious career.”
This year’s HIV Medical Update, geared toward medical professionals throughout the region, was sponsored by Jefferson Primary & Specialty Care – Infectious Diseases, the François-Xavier Bagnoud (FXB) Center at Rutgers School of Nursing, and Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine.
A member of Jefferson Health - New Jersey’s Medical Staff since 1983, Dr. Condoluci is a national expert and leading proponent in the fight against HIV/AIDS. He helped establish the first South Jersey HIV Medical Update in 1989, aimed at helping the medical community effectively respond to the growing AIDS epidemic.
