- Professional overview
Dr. Jennifer Nahum is a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) with experience as an emergency department nurse practitioner, as well as interest in neonatology. She spent her early nursing years in a bedside nurse in a Level III intensive care nursery in Philadelphia and currently practices in a busy emergency department in the Bronx. Dr. Nahum’s doctoral capstone project evaluated the use of a self-assessment tool via tablet computers to assess lymphedema symptoms in post-surgical breast cancer patients. This capstone sparked an interest in policy and she has since joined a task force to advocate for the Lymphedema Treatment Act (S 2373/HR 1608), which is currently under review by Congress.
