Jasmin D. Shirley
Jasmin D. Shirley is a Fort Lauderdale native who comes from a long line of healthcare professionals, and her sense of caring for others is deeply rooted in her every action. During the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the early 1980s, Jasmin found her purpose and took a stand when no one else would. She advocated for government funding, which now totals $136 million annually, to establish Broward County’s first network of home health providers, outpatient clinics, school prevention programs, and hospice agencies for victims of the disease. Thanks to her diligence, patients in South Florida now have access to the quality care they need and are living longer, more fulfilled lives.
