Anthony Vavasis, MD
Dr. Anthony Vavasis completed his undergraduate and medical school training at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He completed his residency training in family medicine at the Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, N. Y., in 1994.

As a result, he developed skills in providing primary care to both indigent families and patients infected with HIV.
Dr. Vavasis now serves as program Clinical Director for the Health Outreach to Teens (HOTT) program affiliated with the Callen-Lorde Community Health Center in New York City. HOTT provides free or low-cost health care to LGBT and other high-risk adolescents and young adults.

He has spoken on this topic extensively and has participated in numerous panels related to HIV testing and prevention for young people. He also serves as the advisory board chair for the Mobile Health Clinics Network.

Prior to joining The Family Van, Ms. Bennet served as the chief development officer at the nonprofit Center for Women & Enterprise, where she spent six years and founded the Community Entrepreneurs Program. This program has successfully trained thousands of low-income women in the basic business, economic-literacy, and life-management skills they need to launch their own micro-enterprise. Ms. Bennett’s diverse background also includes positions in operations, community relations, business development, management, and crisis intervention at both for-profit and nonprofit organizations.
