Susan Richardson, FNP

Medical Editor

Susan Richardson has been an advocate for women’s health services since the 1970’s. Her commitment to educating the public about HIV began in 1986 when she trained community groups as an “AIDS instructor” for the Red Cross. One decade later she began directly caring for women with HIV and AIDS as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Her passion continues today through her clinical practice, providing quality medical care to both women and men who are HIV-infected. As an HIV Specialist certified by the American Academy of HIV Medicine, she currently cares for patients at AID Gwinnett, a Ryan White-funded clinic outside of Atlanta. She also provides clinical training as faculty of the Southeast AIDS Training and Education Center.

Ms. Richardson earned her nursing diploma from Crawford W. Long Memorial Hospital School of Nursing in 1984, and graduated from Emory University in 1989 with Master of Nursing and Master of Public Health degrees.
