Abigail Wilpers, PhD, WHNP-BC is a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. As a researcher, she explores how models of care, social determinants of health, and patients’ experiences connect to care quality and health outcomes. As a clinician, Dr. Wilpers has cared for pregnant people and families facing their greatest fear — the loss of a normal pregnancy and the possibility of going home without a child. Dr. Wilpers combines these passions and skills to drive research and action to enhance health care and health equity for people who receive a fetal diagnosis and may face significant challenges including perinatal loss, preterm birth, and raising a child with special health care needs.
