Dr. Michael Fanous - PharmD, RPh, HIV Educator and Activist

Dr. Michael Fanous is both an activist for LGBTQ+ rights including HIV/AIDS healthcare access and a pharmacist specializing in HIV treatment and prevention. He began working in Canada’s largest HIV clinic, Maple Leaf Medical, over 15 years ago. He earned his Doctor of Pharmacy degree in 2008 from Union University in NY before returning home to Toronto to continue serving his community at several pharmacies in Toronto's Gay Village including The Village Pharmacy and Maple Leaf Medical Pharmacy. He is driven by experiences that he and many of his peers have had to overcome accessing gay-friendly and knowledgeable providers - which is why he volunteers regularly as a counsellor and advisor to many community groups, AIDS Service Organizations, universities, and more.

As an activist, Michael continues in the fight against HIV/AIDS with improving HIV awareness, research projects, and opposing HIV-stigma. As a HIV pharmacist, Dr. Fanous advocates for access to PrEP, PEP, HIV Treatment, Hepatitis C and other LGBTQ+ related health concerns.

All of this lead to the moment where medsEXPERT came to life; to be able to fulfill so many gaps in the health market and our passion for exceptional and compassionate healthcare.
