Leading the Pride stays close to home with Robin Meneguzzo, NP (’11)

December 20, 2018

Leading the Pride keeps it close to home this month with local alumna, Robin Meneguzzo, NP (‘11).  Meneguzzo is a Hancock native who graduated from FinnU with a degree in nursing. She went on to pursue her Master’s degree online from the University of Cincinnati. She currently works as a nurse practitioner at Aspirus Keweenaw and is at the forefront of enhancing patient care for those in the Upper Peninsula with her focus on functional and holistic medicine.

Listen as Meneguzzo talks about her experiences with a telemedicine startup in Minneapolis, the mindfulness-based National Institute of Health grant she’s working on with Michigan Tech Biology professor, John Durocher, to help those with pre-hypertension, and her goals and vision for making the Keweenaw Peninsula a leader in the paradigm shift occurring in medicine from treating one body system to treating the entire patient.

Parting Word

“I see a real need for more emotional support for our community. I think there’s a lot of power in connecting with other people.”
