NURSING PUBLIC HEALTH NETWORK
Nursing public health professionals are at the forefront of preventive healthcare. They work to prevent illnesses and injuries through education, vaccination programs, and health promotion initiatives.
Collaborate with a diverse range of healthcare professionals, including physicians, epidemiologists, social workers, and policymakers, to develop comprehensive strategies for improving public health.
The nursing public health network is essential for promoting health, preventing diseases, and addressing health disparities within communities. Its impact extends beyond clinical care to encompass advocacy, education, research, and emergency response, making it a critical component of a well-functioning healthcare system.
Global Health Initiatives
Nursing public health professionals often engage in international health projects, addressing global health challenges and participating in humanitarian efforts.
Research and Data Analysis
Public health nurses contribute to research efforts to better understand health trends and their underlying causes. Their insights help shape evidence-based policies and interventions.
In times of crises, such as natural disasters or pandemics, these nurses are instrumental in coordinating response efforts, ensuring access to medical care, and providing vital health information to the public.
Vulnerable Population Support
They provide essential care and support to vulnerable populations, including the elderly, children, and those with chronic illnesses, ensuring they have access to necessary healthcare services.

In my free time I have been an EMT, youth sports coach, white water raft guide, volunteer fire fighter and more. I love connecting with people and communities through the lens of outdoor adventures and the medical field. I’m incredibly stoked and grateful to have created JHU SON student Adventure Medicine Team and to be able to help run the NPHN in my interim as president. I look forward to all the connections we can build together to serve and collaborate within our community.
