Bret Camp is leaving Resource Center Dallas to become Texas regional director of AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
“I will dearly miss Resource Center,” he said. “It’s meant a lot to me over the last 17 years.”
Last year, Camp left RCD to deal with B-cell lymphoma, an aggressive form of cancer. After more than six months of treatment, he returned to work with a clean bill of health as the center’s health services director.
During his absence, a new dental suite was outfitted and named for him at Nelson-Tebedo Clinic on Cedar Springs Road.
Last month, AHF opened its first Texas clinic at AIDS Outreach Center in Fort Worth. Camp will work out of the office at Medical City Dallas where a second area clinic is planned. The nonprofit organization is looking to expand into Austin and San Antonio and possibly Houston in the near future.
Camp said what attracted him to AHF was how client-centered the agency is.
“AHF provides cutting-edge medicine and advocacy regardless of ability to pay,” he said.
AHF is expected to open a clinic at Medical City to serve a Far North Dallas area that currently has no AIDS services and is one of the city’s hard hit areas with new cases of HIV.
