Christine Teague

For more than 20 years, Christine Teague has been a warrior in the battle to adequately care for the health of West Virginians. And as director of Charleston Area Medical Center’s (CAMC) Ryan White Early Intervention Services Program, Teague serves on the front lines of the state’s ongoing HIV outbreak. 

Serving more than 500 patients at three different clinics throughout southern West Virginia, the Ryan White Early Intervention Services Program has provided a lifeline to those in need – including many in the Mountain State’s underserved, under-cared for, and undervalued communities. In her role as director, Teague has been a tireless and unrelenting advocate for patient services, access to medications, and the outgrowing of archaic stigmas. 

Teague, as well as several other medical professionals, was recently interviewed for the “When All Are Counted” project. Sponsored by Think Kids of West Virginia, the When All Are Counted project studies how “majority rule” health-data collection impacts those within the state’s Black, LGBTQ+, and disability populations.
