David Chansolme, M.D.

The Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund (OACF) has selected David Chansolme, M.D. as the recipient of this year’s Richard May Award. It will be presented at OACF’s inaugural World AIDS Day Luncheon which is being held Thursday, November 29 at Will Rogers Theatre in Oklahoma City.
David Chansolme, M.D. is a physician, board certified in internal medicine and infectious diseases. He has been in private practice since 2004 and sees patients in both a hospital and office setting. Dr. Chansolme serves on a number of boards around the metropolitan Oklahoma City area and has held several officer positions at the Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund including role of President from 2014-2016.
“We are deeply honored to present this year’s Richard May Award to Dr. Chansolme”, said Paula Love, OACF President. “Dr. Chansolme has not only provided treatment and care to many individuals living with HIV or AIDS, he also has tirelessly given his time, leadership and resources to support the work of the Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund and Red Tie Night. We are in a time where specialists like Dr. Chansolme, who do so much more than treat their patients, are needed. Their impact will help us end the epidemic here in Oklahoma.”
Each year, OACF presents the Richard May Award in recognition of an individual who gives their time and talents to promote HIV/AIDS research or services in Oklahoma. The award was established to honor Richard May, a founder of the OACF who passed away in March 2000. The recipients exemplify strength and compassion, never seeking recognition, which was the spirit of Richard May.
Since its inception in 1991, OACF has distributed more than $12.5 million in funding and resources in the HIV/AIDS community in Oklahoma over the past 27 years. The mission of OACF is to provide support, education, advocacy, and resources to end the HIV and AIDS epidemic.
