Ensuring your safety — HBCU Health & Wellness Accelerator with MSK

Join us on Wednesday for a Health & Wellness Accelerator workshop led by:

Janelle Stewart — EM Program Manager for Training, Education, and Exercise

Janelle Stewart is a critical care registered nurse (RN) with 17 years of experience who transitioned her career into Emergency Management after obtaining her Master of Public Administration in Emergency and Disaster Relief Management in 2018.

Janelle began her nursing career in San Antonio, Texas, where she was able to gain experience working as a Civil Service RN for the US Army and had the opportunity to travel to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti as a volunteer serving the victims of the 2010 Earthquake disaster. This inspired her to become a travel nurse and a few years later began working in New York City at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). There she spent ten years working in the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit before accepting a position in the hospital’s Emergency Management (EM) Department.

Janelle now works as an EM Program Manager for Training, Education, and Exercises, preparing MSKCC employees for dealing with emergencies both at work and at home.

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center — the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center — has devoted more than 135 years to exceptional patient care, innovative research, and outstanding educational programs.

The education programs train future physicians and scientists, and the knowledge and experience they gain at Memorial Sloan Kettering has an impact on cancer treatment and biomedical research around the world. Learn more
