Michael Mizwa has been named Chief Executive Officer of Baylor College of Medicine International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) at Texas Children’s Hospital.
Mizwa has served as the Chief Operating Officer and senior vice president of BIPAI since 2010. His vision and his strategic planning with BIPAI leaders throughout the network has resulted in the organization being internationally recognized for excellence in patient care, research and education.
Mizwa has 33 years of experience in non-profit HIV/AIDS prevention and social services and extensive experience globally in pediatric HIV/AIDS program development, administration and management, human resources development and government relations.
He has received numerous local, state, and national awards in HIV prevention and leadership, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention’s Price Fellowship in HIV Prevention Leadership for developing the first HIV/AIDS offender education training-of-trainers program throughout the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
“I know that you all join me in thanking Mike for accepting the position of CEO,” said BIPAI Board Chair Claire Bassett. “He has the full support of the BIPAI board and the leadership of Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital.”
Bassett added that everyone invested in BIPAI can take great pride in the advances that have been made since the organization began 20 years ago but there is still much to be done for the children and families in the BIPAI network.
