Hannah Girard, DNP, FNP-BC, MPH, MA
Dr. Girard was raised in the northern Berkshires of rural western Massachusetts. She earned degrees in Communication Arts and Modern Foreign Languages at Gordon College. She graduated from Arcadia University with a Master of Public Health in Community Health as well as a Master of Arts in International Peace & Conflict Resolution with a certificate in Restorative Justice. Her theses focused on trauma resilience psychoeducation and nonprofit program evaluation respectively. She is also a graduate of the UMass Chan Medical School Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing where she received her Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) as a board-certified family nurse practitioner.

Her capstone explored antimicrobial stewardship in a community health center. She has worked around the world as a public health practitioner and nurse clinician with diverse populations, many of whom are also disproportionately impacted by HIV and Viral Hepatitis, which spurred her on to pursue fellowship training and expand her ability to collaborate with and advocate for persons experiencing health disparities.
