"Meet The First Nurse To Land a Spot on Forbes 30 Under 30 (in) Healthcare"

Ask Nurse Alice interviewed Dr. Kristen Choi, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health assistant professor of health policy and management, about nurses’ role in the pandemic

Friday, October 29, 2021

As both a clinician and a scientist, Dr. Kristen Choi maintains a clinical practice as a registered nurse at a psychiatric hospital in downtown Los Angeles. And, she was the first and only nurse included in the U.S. Forbes “30 Under 30” healthcare list in 2020. She was also recently inducted as a fellow of the American Academy of Nursing.

Dr. Choi is a psychiatric nurse and health services researcher as well as an assistant professor of Nursing and public health at UCLA. Dr. Choi studies health services and policy approaches to promoting mental health among children and adolescents, and her research projects include studies on adverse childhood experiences, developmental disabilities, and the intersection of homelessness and mental illness.

In other words, Dr. Choi is the real deal and what she had to say to Nurse Alice was also incredibly real, in all the best ways.
