PACPI is saddened by the loss of one of our founding mothers. Susan Ruth Gevirtz was a founding member of Pediatric AIDS Chicago (PAC), the organization that created the Pediatric AIDS Chicago Prevention Initiative.

Susan served many years as a member of PAC and ultimately became president of the organization. Susan was passionate about the work that PAC and PACPI undertook to help prevent the transmission of HIV from mothers to babies.

Susan was a dedicated volunteer, a passionate fundraiser, and most importantly, a model mother to both her children and her community. Susan’s vision lives on in PACPI’s work.

Our thoughts are with the Gevirtz family and all her loved ones.

A memory or condolence can be shared on her legacy page.
