YSN in the Media: James-Conterelli on ‘The Silenced Pandemic’

October 7, 2020

Chair-elect of the Graduate Entry Prespecialty in Nursing (GEPN) program Dr. Sascha James-Conterelli, DNP, CNM, LM, FACNM recently penned the editorial “The Silenced Pandemic” in the journal The Nurse Practitioner. “[H]eightened awareness of our broken healthcare system has been underscored by racial inequities,” James-Conterelli writes. “In the midst of a viral pandemic, the world witnessed another public demonstration of the effects of a second pandemic. Multiple murders of innocent Black unarmed citizens at the hands of law enforcement provided a devastating reminder of the silenced pandemic of systemic racism that has plagued the US since its inception.”
