Interests and Research

Dr. Young leads the University of Illinois Telehealth Program (, providing primary and consultative services for patient populations with traditionally poor access to subspecialty medical services, including the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC).  Our ID Section provides care for all persons in the IDOC system with HIV infection, and those who are treated for hepatitis C, via telemedicine clinics.  The program continues to expand, providing high-quality, up-to-date subspecialty care for patients, with a strong emphasis on teaching and research.

Dr. Young is a principle investigator on the NIH/NIDA funded project “ Seek, Test, Treat and Retain:  A New Model for HIV Care in Prisons” (R01-DA030796-01).  The goal of the project is to explore better ways of providing outstanding HIV care to incarcerated individuals, both within the prison system and as they transition to care in the community.

Dr. Young also has a great interest in teaching, and is Associate Director of the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program and member of the Housestaff Evaluation Committee at UIC.
