CAMP Staff

Kelsey is a Clinical Research Coordinator for the Center for Addiction Medicine and Policy at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. She applies a background in mutual aid, harm reduction, and medical anthropology to work making the hospital accessible and less stigmatizing for people who use drugs. This includes organizing 1:1 hospital accompaniment and support for community members seeking care through emergency departments in the Philadelphia area. She is passionate about putting supplies and knowledge in the hands of patients, learning from community members, and providing a nonjudgmental space to discuss medical concerns. When she’s not packing wound care kits, she enjoys reading, playing tennis, and cooking for family and friends.
