Forty for 40: Sophia Harden, BSN ’11, RN
Compassionate care has been a hallmark of Sophia Harden’s career as a registered nurse.
She received from Massachusetts General Hospital its Disability Champion Award for her work with colleagues in making her unit more welcoming for adult patients with autism spectrum disorder.
Harden also has exported her passion overseas. She was granted a travel award from the hospital’s Center for Global Health to travel to La Rosa, Honduras, as part of a medical mission team that helped empower villagers to provide more long-term health care. In addition, she spent eight weeks in Mbarara, Uganda, as a Global Nursing Fellow during which she taught skin and wound care techniques.
