    Katrina Ciraldo, MD is a family physician with obstetrics training who is currently an Addiction Medicine Fellow in the Department of HIV, ID, and Global Medicine. She is interested in the care of people who use drugs and alcohol, including pregnant and parenting people. She advocates for just policies and believes in non-judgmental clinical care that can counter the disproportionate harms of the ongoing racist War on Drugs. During medical school, she spent one year in rural southwestern Uganda teaching and supervising village health workers; this training included motivational interviewing around unhealthy alcohol use as well as prevention and treatment of other chronic diseases.
