Her groundbreaking work and research in the development of behavioral health programs and depression screening and interventions has been nationally recognized.

For more than 30 years, Rose Madden-Baer has practiced as both a nurse and nursing leader in a variety of home health, MLTC (Managed Long Term Care), and community-based settings. She is a board certified public health/community health clinical specialist, and holds a Doctorate of Nursing Practice from Duke University School of Nursing.
