Robyn Salter

Robyn Salter trained as a Social Worker in the 1970s at Carleton University in Ottawa. She worked in child and family mental health care until 1988 when she joined the newly forming HIV program at Sick Kids. Until she retired in 2019, Robyn was the social worker for children, youth and families living with HIV and parents going through the infant HIV testing process.  She also participated in HIV psychosocial research, education and community connections. She worked closely with Teresa Group staff since 1990 and was on the Board for 9 years. Robyn says “I’m passionate about supporting families in coping with complex issues in living with HIV, especially managing the stigma in ways families choose. And I’m pleased to again support the work of the Teresa Group as a Board member.”
