Instructor and Director of the Health Commons
Katie Clark has been at Augsburg College since 2009. She first began directing the Augsburg Central Health Commons and teaching Community Health courses. In 2011, in partnership with two other local non-profits, Katie launched the Health Commons in Cedar-Riverside. Currently, Katie directs both the Health Commons and teaches various courses in all levels of the nursing programs at Augsburg College. Katie’s main area of expertise is working with those who are marginalized in our society, as she has developed unique experiences for Augsburg nursing students to learn about the health and healing of those who are displaced and is passionate about creating systematic change.
Katie previously worked for eight years as a nurse at University of Minnesota Medical Center – University Campus in both oncology and the medical ICU. She has traveled to 20 different countries and participated in many local volunteer programs, such as the Bridge for Youth and Higher Ground.
