About

After having spent 15 years as a member of the faculty at the University of Michigan Medical School and 22 years as a member of the faculty at Wayne State University Medical School I decided to continue to practice medicine and to serve the community by joining Detroit Community Health Connection.  Since 2008 my practice has been concentrated on patients with HIV infection, sexually transmitted infections and other infectious diseases.  Being the clinic director for HIV infections, I take care of little over 200 patients. With the variety of potent antiretroviral agents, 90% of my patients are doing very well despite the COVID 19 pandemic.Eighty percent of these have undetectable viral load.  The number of newly diagnosed HIV patients has decreased significantly over the last few months.

After having spent 15 years as a member of the faculty at the University of Michigan Medical School and 22 years as a member of the faculty at Wayne State University School of Medicine, Dr. Supena decided to continue to practice medicine and to serve the community by joining Detroit Community Health Connection Inc. Since 2008, his practice has been concentrated on patients with HIV infection, sexually transmitted infections and other infectious diseases.  

Being a knowledgeable infectious disease specialist and the Clinic Director for HIV infections, he takes care of little over 200 patients.

Since opening their doors to patients back in 1988, Detroit Community Health Connection, Inc has been a leading healthcare facility for patients in the Detroit area. The providers care about the satisfaction of their patients and guarantee top of the line medical services to get them back to full health. 

Regarding his educational background, Dr. Supena earned his medical degree from the University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Medicine and Surgery in Manila, Philippines in 1965.

Infectious disease is a medical specialty dealing with prevention, the diagnosis, and treatment of infections.
