As the University of South Carolina Patient Engagement Studio Manager, Anna Nourse has had the amazing opportunity to work with a variety of stakeholders including, but not limited to, patients, researchers, and clinicians. The PCORI-funded project that she has been involved with has been a diabetes-focused Eugene Washington Engagement award. The patient populations and conditions that she has worked with since being involved in patient-centered research have included children, older adults, LGBTQ+, low income, low health literacy/numeracy, racial/ethnic minorities, women, veterans, rural, urban, disabilities, and multiple chronic conditions.
Anna grew up with a diagnosis of attention deficit disorder and a learning disability and is the mother of two children under the age of 5 years. She takes immense pride and responsibility representing parents/caregivers and individuals with learning disabilities and ADHD diagnoses. Her life experiences include growing up in a rural community, living overseas in the United Kingdom for over 5 years, and moving back to the US to an urban area. She is currently in school completing her Master’s in Public Health.
