He has worked for over 40 years in Africa, Latin America, Asia, and the USA as a clinician, manager, researcher, teacher, and policy advocate. His work has focused on improving primary health care, including maternal-child health services, tuberculosis control, and STD/AIDS.

Dr. Gloyd has received many awards, including the WK Kellogg Fellowship, the APHA Mid-career Award and Barsky Award for Political Activism, and the UW Distinguished Teaching Award. He was recognized as the 38th Annual UW Faculty Lecturer in 2013.
