Dr. Emily Rymland
Emily has been a nurse practitioner working in HIV care in Northern California since the early 90s. She was originally drawn to medicine because of the HIV epidemic when many of her friends became ill. As a single mom, she obtained her nurse practitioner degree with a focus on HIV. She has also spent time working in Women’s Health at Planned Parenthood and runs the Buseesa Community Development Centre, a small bush clinic in western Uganda. Emily enjoys working in telemedicine because it increases access for patients, especially those who suffer from the stigma surrounding HIV.
“I love working at Nurx because of the freedom to think outside the box. The mission. The team.”
