I am committed to contributing my unique skills and knowledge as a nurse to improve education for healthcare providers and primary prevention programs for our youth.
Dr. Michelle Munro-Kramer is an Assistant Professor of Nursing and the Suzanne Bellinger Feetham Professor of Nursing at the University of Michigan, School of Nursing. Her clinical background includes certifications as a Family Nurse Practitioner and Certified Nurse Midwife, which she currently uses to provide reproductive and sexual health in community settings. Dr. Munro-Kramer's program of research focuses on trauma, comprehensive care of vulnerable populations, and missed opportunities for care within domestic and international contexts. Her research projects approach these topics using a trauma-informed and patient-centered lens. She uses mixed methods and participatory action research to understand the experiences of vulnerable populations in order to inform future intervention development.
Dr. Munro-Kramer has adapted and piloted an innovative web-based app, called MKit, focused on healthy relationships and sexual violence using a life skills perspective. She is currently working on evaluating this app within different types of college and university settings. Dr. Munro-Kramer is also working with an interdisciplinary and transnational team to adapt and pilot a primary prevention sexual violence intervention at universities in Ghana. Dr. Munro-Kramer teaches graduate and undergraduate students. She has developed the first undergraduate elective course at the University of Michigan focused on gender-based violence. The course is cross-listed to include students from across the campus and incorporates lectures as well as experiential hours where students apply the principles from the course by attending community events and trainings related to gender-based violence.
