“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
Alden brings decades of experience serving as a Senior Clinical Specialist in the Care Continuum Network at Elevate Health. In her role, Alden supports care coordination training and protocol development for the work of the community health workers who partner with us. She also devotes her expertise to care coordination projects with community partners.
Alden began her career as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 1983, working in many community settings such as schools, public health, and primary care clinics. Her chief priority has always been to focus on ways for patients to optimize their emotional and physical health. She developed a Diabetes Treatment and Prevention Project in Nicaragua that is now run by lay health promoters. Working with community health workers brings her great joy because their work has so much impact.
In her personal time, Alden loves to swim and take long walks. She also loves to re-read the works of Jane Austen every year.
