Maureen Kelly, MS, RN

Through the AZLEND program, I am excited to further develop my leadership and advocacy skills in care approaches for children with disabilities.  Nursing has given me the tools needed not only to care for patients, but also to empower them and their family through education and knowledge.  My previous experience has afforded me with a unique understanding of issues in healthcare from the perspective of a researcher, a patient, and a service provider that I feel will present me with the ability to consider questions or issues from all points of view when learning new concepts in this program.
