Amy DeMott, an experienced clinical program manager and health care administrator, was recently named director of Passport Health at the University of Rochester School of Nursing.
In her new role, DeMott will oversee the administrative and clinical operations of the UR clinic, one of more than 250 Passport Health locations across North American that provides pre-travel physicals, vaccinations, access to travel health insurance, and prescriptions for avoiding travel-related illnesses. She is the main point of contact for faculty and staff who would like to make travel medicine arrangements.
The UR Passport Health clinic specializes in yellow fever, typhoid, malaria, and meningitis vaccinations, and provides expertise on health alerts and Center for Disease Control recommendations. In addition to travel medicine services, Passport Health also responds to the area’s need for other vaccines, such as those for shingles, HPV, influenza, and hepatitis A and B, and provides other health-related educational and safety resources.
DeMott, who took over the role in October, is a 2018 graduate of the Executive MBA program from the University of Rochester Simon Business School. She spent the previous nine years building a resume of progressive responsibility at Lifetime Care Home Health Care and Hospice. Most recently, she served as assistant director of palliative care and hospice.
An RN who earned her nursing degree from Roberts Wesleyan College, DeMott began her career as a med-surg nurse at Unity Health System.
