The feeling is mutual: Diana Drake & Carrie Terrell

Two days each week, Clinical Assistant Professor Diana Drake, DNP, APRN, WHNP-BC, sees patients at the Women’s Health Specialists Clinic at the University of Minnesota, where she serves as one of four members of the clinic’s interprofessional leadership team. She and Carrie Terrell, MD, care for women across the lifespan who have a range of health interests and needs.

“We have a collaborative team approach to care that results in more contributions from multiple disciplines to benefit the patient. We rely on each other’s areas of expertise to offer the patient a wider array of treatment options and create a seamless care system for the patient as much as possible.”

“Diana’s expertise in holistic health and integrative approaches helps us offer patients more options for wellness optimization and management of acute or chronic disease."
