Karen Gedney MD, ABAARM  is board certified in both internal medicine and anti-aging regenerative medicine.  As a National Health Service Corps Scholarship winner she was placed in a male medium security prison after her training to do a four year payback in 1987. Against all odds she turned it into a calling that lasted almost three decades.  As a  pioneer in HIV care in correctional settings, she was given  ‘The Nevada Hero’s for Humanity  Award’ in 2000. She was also recognized by the American Correctional Association as one of the ‘Best in the Business’.  Since leaving the prison in 2016 she has dedicated her life to helping shift the current prison paradigm to one of prevention, healing and re-integration.
