Meet the team

We believe that every person should be empowered to advocate for their personal health by identifying their preferences and having them honored by their healthcare provider.

We will help you create your personal roadmap to plan for future healthcare decisions. Meet the team that will help you through this process.

Carol

Carol F. Robinson

DNP, MS, BSN, RN, CHPN®, Community Corodinator
Dr. Robinson has had a varied nursing career in both clinical and administrative leadership positions. Her passion for the care of chronically ill patients and families led to extensive experience with patient/family communication relative to quality of life and treatment preferences. Her scholarly work has focused on communication skills for health professionals, including advance care planning conversations. Her friendly and open approach has helped many individuals create an advance directive reflective of one's own personal values, beliefs, and preferences for end-of-life care. Dr. Robinson was in the first DNP Health Systems Leadership graduating class at the GVSU-Kirkhof College of Nursing. She has since served as an Adjunct Faculty member at GVSU in the nursing program and in the post-graduate interprofessional hospice and palliative care certificate program.
