Dr. Delia Bullock to receive HRC award for lifetime advocacy
QSanAntonio, November 6, 2013

The San Antonio chapter of the Human Rights Campaign announced this week that Dr. Delia Bullock, medical director of the University Health System's FFACTS Clinic, will be honored with the Chuck Jordan Award at the HRC Gala and Silent Auction on December 7 at the Westin Riverwalk.

The Chuck Jordan Award is presented annually by HRC San Antonio to an individual who has demonstrated a lifetime of advocacy for an issue or cause that has an impact on the city's LGBT community.

"HRC is proud to present Dr. Delia Bullock with the Chuck Jordan Award," said HRC governor Chad Reuman. "She works tirelessly to promote the good health of the community by providing the highest quality of care to patients living with HIV/AIDS. She is dedicated to teaching the next generation of health professionals the best medical practice with emphasis on training in LGBT patient-centered care."

The FFACTS Clinic (Family Focused AIDS Clinical Treatment Services) is an outpatient facility of the University Health System that treats individuals with HIV/AIDS. Established in 1990, the clinic is one of the oldest primary care AIDS programs in South Texas. It is funded in part by the Ryan White Treatment and Modernization Act. According to their web site, the clinic's mission is to provide HIV-infected individuals in our area with "the finest medical care and holistic treatment."

Currently, Dr. Bullock, along with a staff of six physicians, oversees and provides care to more that 2000 infected patients.

Dr. Bullock began her 17 years of service to the community during a time when equal rights and access to medical care could not be taken for granted for the LGBT community. She often has gone beyond the call of duty to provide and support the commitment for same sex couples to have equal and informed healthcare.

Under Dr. Bullock's leadership, the FFACTS Clinic not only provides medical care but also offers therapy for mental health issues and counseling to deal with other problems like partner needs, domestic violence, housing, and nutritional needs.

Dr. Bullock has been recognized with service awards from BEAT AIDS, the San Antonio AIDS Foundation and ACTS Ministry. She also has earned the widespread respect of others in San Antonio's HIV treatment community.

"Dr. Bullock has been a champion for the local HIV community for years," says Jill Rips, deputy executive director of the San Antonio AIDS Foundation. "She may be responsible for caring for 60 percent of the HIV community in San Antonio. She spends so much time with each patient, learning not only about their medical condition, but more so about who they are as a person. Not only is she a compassionate care provider to her patients, she is a major supporter of local AIDS service organizations."
