Meet Michael Anthony Price, one of five new members of the Dean’s Executive Student Council. . Pronouns: he/his
As a student that embodies diversity through my racial and ethnic identity, sexuality, invisible disability, first-generation and low-income status, it behooved me to apply to for the Dean's Executive Student Council. I am an advocate of diversity and inclusion and champion to work to improve the lives of the underserved and marginalized. I look forward to working with the Nell Hodgson School of Nursing to make lasting change and improve the student experience. I earned a BA in Ethnicity and Race Studies from Columbia University and worked in my undergraduate years as a volunteer in the community and as an advocate for diversity and inclusion at the student, faculty and professor levels. I came to Emory University to become a nurse leader, a nurse scholar and a nurse activist. . I am personally invested in the LGBTQIA+ community in the Atlanta area and working to improve the health disparities of this population. I am excited to serve in this role and am here to support the needs of the Emory University Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing community.
Meet Cat Palmer, one of five new members of the Dean's Executive Student Council. . Pronouns: she/her
I am passionate about equitable, preventative, and holistic health that honors an individual’s autonomy and dignity. I originally pursued this passion for health as a public health practitioner, appreciating the systemic and equity-focused lens that public health offers. While working in this field I realized that my aptitude for therapeutic relationships and my interest in the human body better suited me for clinical work. After being trained as a lactation consultant and doula I practiced in the Piedmont region of North Carolina for two years, attending the births of low-income women and contributing to local efforts to eliminate the disparity between African American infant mortality rates, Hispanic infant mortality rates, and white infant mortality rates. As a nurse, I hope to promote critical self-reflection and conversation among my fellow health care workers, and to dismantle the bias inherent in our health care system. It is an honor to serve on the Dean’s Executive Student Council, and I look forward to seeing the creative ways that Emory SON students will find to address bias and injustice in our education and our profession.
Meet Laura Franco, one of five new members of the Dean's Executive Student Council. . Pronouns: she/her
As a humanist, I came to nursing to discover the intersection between our human experiences and healthcare. With a passion for ethics, I hope to eventually pursue a degree in bioethics to continue the conversation around ethical end of life care. During my time at Emory, I have been involved in Student Government Association, Emory Student Nurses Association, and the nursing school’s BUNDLES program. I am excited and honored to be part of the movement towards a more inclusive and diverse School of Nursing. I hope that through my participation on the Dean’s Executive Student Council, meaningful dialogue and change can be created.
