Jillian Murphy - Volunteering Profile

A young community health professional with a humanitarian heart aiming to volunteer services to underprivileged/ marginalized populations around the world

About Me

I have been working in the Infectious Disease field as an HIV/AIDS Health Educator/Case Worker for the past few years since graduating college in 2014. I have direct experience working with newly diagnosed/ non-adherent HIV/AIDS patients. I've helped patients overcome diagnosis though individual counseling, conducted motivational interviewing/ risk reduction sessions as well as group level intervention sessions to help patients better manage their overall health care to keep patients and partners healthy. I work alongside medical staff including medical providers, nurses, social workers, psychiatrists, nutritionists and peers to coordinate care for each individual patient. I absolutely love working to empower people and want offer services and utilize my skills to serve underprivileged/marginalized communities and gain more international health experience.
