“My status as an outsider and stranger complicates an already difficult process of asking clients intimate questions about their medical and personal history. By affording clients as much agency as possible in our interactions, such as by adopting a harm-reduction approach to conversations about sexual activity and drug use, I collaborate with clients to begin the process of building up their autonomy in a carceral environment where it is regularly denied.”

"With any act of care provision, it is important to meet the patients where they are and to accommodate their needs, a value which was strongly emphasized during Pre-Service Orientation with NHC Philadelphia. Our classes in Norristown have done a tremendous job in this regard by integrating Hispanic culture directly into the classes."

"I have grown to truly enjoy medical case management because it affords the opportunity to really know a person’s medical journey through identifying issues and barriers that may prevent them from getting care."
