    Tyler B. Evans, MD, MS, MPH, AAHIVS, DTM&H, FIDSA currently serves as the CEO and co-founder of Wellness and Equity Alliance, a national alliance of public health clinicians and supporting operations committed to transforming health care delivery to vulnerable communities with a focus on effective COVID-19 clinical services in strategic settings. Prior to this, he held a number of physician executive positions, including CEO/CMO for Curative Medical Associates, where we facilitated the mass administration of COVID-19 vaccines across the nation with >2 million doses in 10 states with a focus on health equity. He was previously the Deputy Health Officer for the Marin County (Bay Area, California) Health and Human Services Agency and leading the COVID-19 vaccine mass distribution operations, as well as the first chief medical officer (CMO) for NYC - based at the Office of Emergency Management medical branch focusing on COVID-19 isolation, quarantine and risk reduction hotel operations. Prior to COVID-19, he was the CMO for the county of Santa Cruz (California) Health Services Agency, and held multiple other leadership positions in Southern California focusing on homelessness, substance abuse and migrant health, as well as leading infectious disease divisions in a number of organizations across the US – including the AIDS HealthCare Foundation.

    With training in tropical medicine/infectious disease, internal medicine, preventive medicine/public health, and epidemiology, he has worked extensively with vulnerable populations both in the US and abroad. In addition to a number of international missions (mostly in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and the Middle East) with Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders), Partners in Health and other global organizations, he has also worked domestically serving Native Americans with the Indian Health Service, as well as at a large federally qualified health center (FQHC) in NYC, where he established one of the first refugee/asylee integrated primary care/mental health programs. He is one of the founders of the NYC Refugee and Asylee Health Coalition (NYCRAHC).

    In terms of populations, his life’s work has focused on health equity, working with special populations, namely migrants (namely refugees, asylees and victims of human trafficking), the LGBTQ (with a special focus on transgender populations), the homeless, and Native Americans. He is currently focusing on the mental health needs of women affected by gender-based violence (including conflict-related gang rapes) in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). In terms of fields of medicine, most of his experience is in HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, TB, neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), travel medicine, as well as general primary care and community health. Academically, his research interests are in HIV, hepatitis C, COVID-19, tropical and travel medicine, transgender health, homeless health and the social determinants of health. He holds two faculty appointments at the University of Southern California (USC), Keck School of Medicine, Department of Population and Public Health Sciences and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) with a number of teaching and precepting engagements. He also serves on a number of boards and executive committees, including the HIV Medicine Association (HIVMA), representing >12,000 HIV providers in the US. He currently splits his time between the Bay Area, CA and New York, NY.
