Ken Ho won the 2023 Kerry Stoner Award

The Cathedral of Learning

Ken Ho, associate professor in the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine, won the 2023 Kerry Stoner Award.

The honor is presented annually by the Allies for Health + Wellbeing, formerly the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force, to an individual for progressing the legacy of its namesake, who died of complications from AIDS in 1993.

Ho is the medical director for the Pitt Men’s Study, the Pittsburgh branch of the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study, and for Project Silk, a community resource that provides free STI and HIV testing for youth and young adults. His research includes HIV prevention, currently with a focus on the use of intermittent pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) among gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men.

Considered a national expert on HIV prevention, Ho also was also recognized by Pittsburgh Magazine in 2022 as one of the region’s top doctors.
