Carl Vogel Center (CVC) is a nonprofit community-based organization that provides multidisciplinary and integrated medical healthcare that embodies all aspects of a person's physical, mental, and emotional well-being. CVC helps medically underserved individuals to become full partners and informed advocates in managing their health.
The late Don Vogel, founder and first president of Carl Vogel Center, began the organization in 1990 in memory of his son, Carl, who died of AIDS in January 1989. The Center enjoys the continuing support of Carl’s brother and sister, Mark and Paula Vogel. Paula Vogel is a playwright who won the off-Broadway theatrical award, the OBIE, for her play The Baltimore Waltz. The play is about Paula taking an imaginary trip around Europe with her brother, Carl, before his death from AIDS.
