Alumnae Reflections: Hannah Simon-Girard ’14 MA-IPCR and MPH

Hannah is a registered nurse (RN), practicing in community health, completing her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree at University of Massachusetts Medical School.

As a graduate of both Arcadia’s Master of Arts in International Peace & Conflict Resolution and Public Health programs, I received mentoring and professional training from faculty across the fields of peace building and population health – most notably Dr. Bill Jacobsen, Dr. Warren Haffar, and Alex Otieno. My global field work experiences in locations such as Cyprus, Ukraine, & Rwanda both challenged and inspired me as a scholar and practitioner to appreciate the complexities of the work and the necessity of remaining intellectually curious and humble. Nowadays, I continue to apply this wisdom and skillset within my program oversight and direct patient care, as a staff nurse as well as a clinical resident pursuing my DNP-FNP, in my current setting at a federally qualified health center. I am regularly reminded in my daily practice of all of the ways that my training in IPCR and Community Health influence my worldview and decision-making for the better. It is a unique gift and responsibility that I carry into the future.”
