Walt Odets is a clinical psychologist in private practice who has worked with and written about the psychological, developmental and social lives of gay men for more than three decades. He is best-known for his seminal book, In the Shadow of the Epidemic: Being HIV-Negative in the Age of AIDS, which Duke University Press published in 1995 and was selected by The New York Times as one of the “Notable Books of the Year.” He lives in Berkeley, California and can be found online at www.waltodets.com.

 

Rob Levy is a Community Health Educator in the Rochester/Finger Lakes Region of New York State, where he lives with his husband and their adopted son. Prior to his current work in the substance abuse field, Rob taught high school and worked with at-risk youth in the city of Rochester. Shortly after the death of a friend to AIDS in 1996, Rob read Walt’s In the Shadow of the Epidemic, a book he feels saved his life.
