Erica Monasterio, RN, MN, FNP-BC
My expertise is in working with high risk youth in community-based settings and developing and monitoring primary care programs to serve marginalized youth. I am active in training health care and social service professionals to increase their knowledge, sensitivity and skills in working with adolescents and young adults, particularly in the areas of adolescent development, risk and resilience, sexuality, sexual minority youth, substance involvement and designing interventions to support youth in modifying their risk. My special interests are in developing accessible, interdisciplinary, community-based services for youth, integrating mental health, reproductive health, and STD/HIV services into primary care settings.
