    Amanda Peacock is an Assistant Clinical Professor at UCSF School of Nursing and teaches primarily in the Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP) program. Her teaching foci are primary care practice, clinical prevention, and population health. She is also involved with the Interprofessional Education (IPE) curriculum at UCSF.

    Her DNP project focused on culturally informed community assessment and intervention in rural south India. Partnering with the community and using the Culturally Informed Healthy Aging (CIHA) model, she and colleagues conducted a cultural inquiry and health assessment of a rural south Indian village. Using information obtained during assessment and leveraging available cultural capital, the team created a diabetes healthy aging program. Her DNP project focused specifically on culturally informed lower extremity complication prevention.

    Her clinical practice is with Interprofessional Primary Care Outreach for Persons with Mental Illness (IPCOM), a practice with a long-standing partnership with Progress Foundation in San Francisco. Working with an interprofessional team including pharmacy, medicine, psychiatry, nursing, and counselors, she provides primary care, episodic care, care coordination, and group education to three Progress Foundation programs.
