Robert Brandt receives outstanding alumni award from WSU College of Science and Mathematics

Dr. Robert L. Brandt Jr., medical director of Health Care Interventions, is the 2001 Outstanding Alumni Award winner from the Wright State University College of Science and Mathematics. Brandt will be recognized during the outstanding alumni awards brunch on Saturday, Feb. 17, in the Ervin J. Nutter Center Berry Room on the WSU campus.

Brandt's medical practice includes the treatment of people living with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). He earned bachelor's, master's and medical degrees from Wright State.

"Dr. Brandt has devoted much of his medical career to the treatment of patients with HIV and AIDS," said Roger Gilpin, dean of Wright State's College of Science and Mathematics. "He is a tireless advocate for patients with HIV/AIDS and is an extraordinary humanitarian."

Brandt has a current caseload of approximately 400 HIV/AIDS patients, but he has managed more than 2,000 HIV/AIDS patients in his career. His philosophy of primary care is based on preventative medicine and a holistic approach to the treatment of patients.

Brandt has been a member of the Ohio Department of Health AIDS Advisory Committee since its inception in 1983. He was co-founder of the Dayton Area AIDS Task Force and served as chair and later president. Brandt is currently a board member of the AIDS Foundation of the Miami Valley, the Ohio AIDS Coalition, and chairs the Ryan White Committee of the Dayton AIDS Consortium.
