“When we are constantly considering other people and checking our own privilege, that is when we are building others up,” says nurse Melanie Morgan. “We have made great strides, but let’s keep it going by applying it to all aspects of our lives and remembering all the different races, genders, abilities, ages, religion, legal statuses, body types, and more that make up this community.” As a Registered Nurse in both Employee Health and a Gastrointestinal Surgical Stepdown for a major New York health system, Morgan is working to provide patient-centered care that listens to and uplifts everyone’s voice, regardless of background. She’s currently operating as a frontline worker during the Coronavirus pandemic — a “unique experience,” as she calls it — and revels in the situation’s silver lining: that she gets to use creative and critical thinking to engage with the different people she works with, both as patients and as coworkers. “Capitalism may limit my time and resources, but I still take great pride in being able to bring my passion for social justice to my work,” she says. “Advocating for my patients and ensuring they have the best possible experience based on their needs is my favorite part of being a nurse.” When not working the typical 9-5 p.m. shift or overnight overtime, Morgan kicks butt as a member of Gotham Girls Roller Derby, where she skates with her team Bronx Gridlock. —IL
