Dr. Kevin Cahill Bio
Dr. Cahill was a member of the New York City Board of Health and one of America’s most respected doctors. Examples of his reputation include his being flown to Rome to treat the Pope when he was shot, and Daniel Ortega, the Sandinista president of Nicaragua in a special medical emergency. He was the organizer of a seminal AIDS symposium in New York in 1983. The papers presented were immediately published in his book “The AIDS Epidemic”,  just three months before this Gayblevision interview.
