When Monica Harmon started working as a nurse in 2001, the community was seen as something that was not a part of health care and of little concern to nurses.

She has always felt that the community patients come from plays a central role in their lives and health. As a nurse and a faculty member at Penn Nursing, Ms. Harmon focuses on holistic health care that addresses community factors that positively or negatively influence health.

“I help undergraduate students become better-rounded health care practitioners primed to address 21st century health care needs.”
