About Our Presenters

Dr. Sidney Hankerson is a psychiatrist who is currently conducting research at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. His area of research and clinical expertise is treating people with major depression. For the past three years, he also worked as a staff psychiatrist at Metropolitan Center for Mental Health, a community-based clinic that serves primarily patients of Dominican and Puerto Rican descent. He has given multiple presentations about depression and co-occurring illnesses at various community settings. He also teaches and supervises psychiatry residents from Columbia University at the New York State Psychiatric Institute.

At the tender age of 17 Lolisa became ill and soon found out that she was HIV positive and had been infected with the virus since birth. Lolisa embraced this news as she had embraced so many other things that most people might have seen as unbearable obstacles. She decided to control her own destiny by taking the initiative to fully educate herself about this virus that she previously knew nothing about. From that point on, Lolisa has been on a mission to raise awareness about this epidemic nationally, in addition to educating her family and friends about the importance of HIV/AIDS education.  In June of 2011, Lolisa's first novel- a self-published memoir titled The Way I See It was released to exceptional reviews. The goal of this publication is to inspire people who may be facing any type of trying times in life and let them know that anything is possible. Lolisa's story is one of strength and courage that anyone who has faced challenges can relate to.
