Sally Neville has devoted the past 20-plus years of her career to treatment of HIV patients and has become a nationally recognized leader in HIV care, prevention and program management.
As vice-president of clinical specialty services at Kansas City Care Clinic, she is responsible for HIV primary care, peer-to-peer treatment adherence, clinical trials and MATEC-MO, a federally supported health professional continuing education program serving the state of Missouri.
She manages several federal grants that support HIV care at the clinic and regionally. She has served on numerous federal, state and regional HIV advisory boards, conducted clinical site visits at other federally supported programs and chaired the Kansas City Transitional Grant Area Comprehensive HIV Prevention and Planning Council.
“I am proud to be an ISU graduate and to call Terre Haute my hometown,” Neville said. “Who I am and what I have been able to accomplish started here.”
In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the university’s nursing program, Neville will serve as alumni speaker for spring commencement.
Neville moved to Missouri following her graduation from Indiana State in 1974 with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. She began her nursing career in Columbia and completed a Master of Science in nursing from the University of Missouri in 1987. She moved to Kansas City in 1990 and began work on an in-patient unit dedicated to AIDS patients. In 2011, Bank of America recognized Neville with its Local Heroes Award for her outstanding work in the community.
She lives in Kansas City with her partner, Kathy Nesbitt.
