Wendy Grube Retires: A Look Back at Her Penn Nursing Career

Enter the Fagin Hall office of Wendy D. Grube, GNu,82, GR’10, PhD, CRNP, FAAN, and one of the first things you might see is a clear glass bell. The Order of the Bell was presented to Dr. Grube in 2017 by Mountains of Hope, West Virginia’s statewide cancer coalition, for her work to break barriers in public health in rural West Virginia. Dr. Grube has taken a special interest in this area, which has a significantly elevated rate of cervical cancer mortality—in addition to centering her 2010 doctoral dissertation on cervical screening in rural West Virginia, since 2008 she has partnered with the local community, spearheading a Penn Nursing service learning project in West Virginia that has included free cervical screenings (over 300 women screened) and other urgent health care screenings and education as informed by community need.
