Dr. Dr. Rebecca Sutter​

As a doctorally trained and credentialed Family Nurse Practitioner, Dr. Sutter serves as the Director of a network of eight Academic Nurse-managed community clinics. She has developed, implemented, and evaluated a unique model of community healthcare access and navigation called The Bridge Care Model. This model of care uses a systems approach to improve care and promote collaboration between public health, public safety, and health to ensure that evidence-based treatment is available for at risk and marginalized individuals, families, communities, and populations. She uses the academic nurse managed clinics, which are strategically located in medically underserved areas (MUA) across the Northern Virginia region, to provide services to underserved and vulnerable populations and conducts translational research on evidence-based care for patients with limited resources. She has expanded this model of care to include criminally involved at risk individuals being released into the community using a comprehensive and coordinated approach to connect them to needed health and social services using care navigation and peer recovery support programs. Dr. Sutter has a history of extensive successful community collaborations on a variety of multidisciplinary implementation programs and research studies.
