An Advocate for Women's Health
I attended Kent State University's College of Nursing in 2010 for the Women's Health Nurse Practitioner program when Dr. Cyndi Roller, Ph.D., CNM, WHNP-BC, was the director. During my matriculation, I learned from knowledgeable faculty and community health care leaders. The skills I obtained impacted me to become an advocate for women's health. Currently, my practice focuses on serving women who are uninsured, under-insured, or those who encounter health disparities. Without the knowledge and skills obtained from Kent State, I would not have been able to grow within my field. I enjoyed my learning experience to the point that I decided to pursue my Doctor of Nursing Practice degree from Kent State. The focus of my scholarly project is to develop a community-based breast cancer awareness educational program for African American women living in a medically under-served area of Calhoun County, Michigan. Kent State was an inclusive, welcoming, and diversity driven university. Happy 50 years strong!
