Ann opened the first grant-funded free anonymous HIV testing in NW Ohio in 1985. Ann foresaw the need for services for people living with HIV/AIDS and gathered a team of experts to form Ryan White Program at the University of Toledo Medical Center in 2000. Ann coordinated the Ryan White Program until her unexpected death in June 2010.
