Vincent Guilamo-Ramos, PhD, MPH, LCSW, RN, ANP-BC, PMHNP-BC, FAAN, is Dean and Distinguished Professor of the Duke University School of Nursing and Vice Chancellor for Nursing Affairs, Duke University. He is also the founding director of the Center for Latino Adolescent and Family Health (CLAFH) at Duke University. Dr. Guilamo-Ramos is a nurse practitioner dually licensed in primary care (ANP-BC) and psychiatric-mental health nursing (PMHNP-BC). Widely regarded as an expert, scholar and leader in adolescent and young adult sexual and reproductive health promotion and the social determinants of health (SDOH), Dr. Guilamo-Ramos’ research has been funded externally for two decades by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and various other federal agencies. His research focuses on the role of families in promoting adolescent and young adult health among Latinos and in other underserved communities, with a special focus on mitigating the mechanisms through which SDOH shape health outcomes and inequities. Most recently, Dr. Guilamo-Ramos has applied SDOH mitigation principles to the design of a nurse-led and family-based approach to increase COVID-19 testing, vaccine uptake, and overall household capacity for COVID-19 mitigation in medically and socioeconomically underserved communities, an application currently being evaluated as part of the National Institutes of Health’s Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics in Underserved Populations (RADx-UP) initiative. Dr. Guilamo-Ramos currently serves as a member of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA), the HHS Panel on Antiretroviral Guidelines for Adults and Adolescents, and the CDC/HRSA Advisory Committee on HIV, Viral Hepatitis and STD Prevention and Treatment. He also serves as chair of the Power to Decide Board of Directors, as vice chair of the Latino Commission on AIDS Board of Directors, and on the Board of the HIV Medicine Association.
