A registered nurse, Alice Johnson is passionate about promoting health equity through her work as a clinical mentor at Last Mile Health (LMH) in Liberia. Since 2012, Johnson has provided LMH with leadership in recruiting, training, and supervising frontline health workers to provide comprehensive health services in rural villages. Before joining LMH, she graduated from the prestigious Mother Patern College of Health Sciences in Monrovia, Liberia. It was during her time as a nursing student that she first became aware of the vast injustices in health care delivery, which were accentuated in the rural areas marked by often delayed treatment for the poor. Living through the Liberian Civil War has shaped Johnson’s life perspective and led her to a career in both community and hospital-based nursing, where she has provided care to thousands of patients. In the future, she hopes to expand LMH’s frontline health worker model in Liberia, and beyond.
