Nursing is a second career for Dr. Price. She started in medical research as the principle research technologist operating a genotyping platform at a DNA Core facility at the University of Chicago.  Desiring more patient contact, she transitioned into nursing on the Med/Surg/ Tele unit by way of a nurse residency program. After two years at the bedside, she went on to further her career as a Family Nurse Practitioner.

 

With a goal of providing quality, evidence-based and culturally competent healthcare to the underserved community, Dr. Price started her Nurse Practitioner career at a federally qualified health center and now serves in the California Corrections System assisting with the integration of the medical home model to improve primary care services amongst inmates while precepting the next generation of Correctional Health Nurse Practitioners.

 

Socially, Dr. Price’s favorite pastime is international travel. She has visited all 7 continents (Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America). Aside from traveling, she also enjoys blogging; her blog interests include personal lifestyle including correctional health, nursing inspiration, and travel.
