Provider joins Digestive Health Clinic
Family Nurse Practitioner Kimberly Callahan has joined UNC Health Southeastern’s Southeastern Digestive Health Center.
“I believe in treating each patient as if he/she/they were a close family member,” said Callahan. “I also believe in empowering patients to ask questions and be partners in their care.”
Callahan treats patients throughout the lifespan and has extensive experience in treating patients of all ages in acute and outpatient settings. She plans to treat pediatric patients in the near future so they don't have to travel as far for specialty care.
Within gastroenterology, she has a special interest in hepatitis, liver disease, and the relationship of mental health to gastrointestinal health.
Callahan completed a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Emory University in Atlanta, Ga., in 2000 and a master’s degree in nursing with family nurse practitioner training at North Georgia College and State University, Dahlonega, Ga., in 2008. She is a certified breastfeeding specialist and has completed training in adult and pediatric forensic nurse examination.
A native of Macon, Ga., Callahan currently resides in Hope Mills. She has two daughters.
