KC Miller (Nu’22) wants you to talk about sex. Not steamily. Not flirtatiously. Not jokingly. Not guiltily. He wants you to talk about sex the way you talk about other aspects of daily life – like food or music. No shame or embarrassment; just regular, healthy talk. “What’s most important,” he said, “is that people talk about sex in an informed way.”
Penn nursing asked KC Benchimol, Nu’14, GNu’18, GNu’19, RN, WHNP-BC, and Monika Wasik, C’12, Nu’15, GNu’18, RN-CBC, to walk us through the policy change they spearheaded across postpartum units at the University of Pennsylvania Health System—a simple change that makes it easier for all people to participate in the postpartum experience and symbolizes
acceptance of LGBTQ+ parents.
Kisimbi Thomas Nu’02 W’02, graduate of the first class of the Penn Nursing and Health Care Management Program (NHCM) and a health care innovator in Kenya, describes how care can be brought to underserved patients in Africa, and not just as a charity.
