Julie Ward

I have worked as a nurse in the emergency department, in primary care for the uninsured, and in all stages of health promotion program design and development at local, state, and national levels. With nursing’s breadth of knowledge, experience with people in wellness and in illness, and unique systems savvy, we are essential agents of healthy change, and opportunities are everywhere.
