Excerpt: Jesse Peel talks about getting involved with AID Atlanta.


Originally from Everetts in eastern North Carolina, Jesse Peel graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he attended medical school, then completed his residency in psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania. He spent two years in the Navy, with tours in Vietnam and Okinawa. He lived in San Francisco and Nashville before moving to Atlanta in 1976 — just before the start of the AIDS epidemic.  

Witnessing the toll of the AIDS epidemic, Peel co-founded many of the major AIDS service organizations in Atlanta and Georgia, including AID Atlanta and Positive Impact, a mental health program for people with HIV and their friends, family and caregivers.

Peel now works with archivists at Emory University to document the fight against AIDS.
