Nurse, Advocate Health Care, Chicago, IL
Atundra makes house calls to help community members recovering from injuries and illnesses.
Atundra provides care to patients living in some of the toughest areas in Chicago — including her childhood neighborhood, Englewood. She works with Advocate at Home, making house calls to community members who are recovering from injuries and illnesses at home, but still require medical attention and advice.
“I understand how important it is that our patients get the care they need, the care they deserve,” Atundra says. “I plan to do this for as long as they need me.”
Thank you, Atundra, for your commitment to your patients and the community!
