MarySue V. Heilemann, PhD, RN, FAAN is a professor at the UCLA School of Nursing and a Program Director of the UCLA National Clinician Scholars Program (NCSP). Informed by social justice concerns and clinical work in perinatal and public health nursing, Dr. Heilemann has devoted her scientific career to Latinas’ mental health and resilience. Based on her three-fold area of expertise (media-based mental health interventions informed by qualitative research findings), Dr. Heilemann is actively refining a new model and methodology using evidence-informed transmedia storytelling for scalable patient interventions that are easily accessible via smartphone, tablet, or computer.
