Biography:

Jessica Prothe, RN BSN is a graduate nursing student at Northern Illinois University.  A doctoral student devoted to patient safety and patient advocacy. Her current research interests are breast implant illness (BII) and breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). Her efforts are bringing illness-specific care to these disease processes via awareness and the implementation of universal screening for implantable devices. Universal screening for implantable devices is a screening tool that enables the early identification of implantable device-related diseases and illnesses such as BII and BIA-ALCL.
