Nurse Practitioner (NP) &
Sub Investigator (Sub 1)
Wendy Lin is a Nurse Practitioner (NP) and Sub Investigator (Sub I) at Boston Center for Memory (BCM). She is a certified and licensed Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) with a registered nursing background. Wendy believes in delivering sustainable, compassionate, evidence-based care and supporting Alzheimer’s patients and caregivers through sincere discussions and education. She was impressed by BCM’s hybrid model of on-site Alzheimer’s clinical trials and patient-facing clinical work, and chose to work at BCM due to its innovation, collaborative clinical-research team approach, and very exciting potential in progressing the Alzheimer’s care landscape.
Prior to her role at BCM, Wendy worked as a Nurse Practitioner in Adult Internal Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Chelsea, and in Occupational Health at multiple Raytheon and Intel Corporation sites throughout MA and TX. Her previous registered nursing experiences span both inpatient and outpatient settings in occupational health, medical-surgical oncology, continuing care retirement community (CCRC) wellness, and camp nursing.
Wendy’s first exposure to Alzheimer’s disease was while visiting her maternal grandmother as a young girl. As she gained professional experiences involving Alzheimer’s – during summers volunteering with veterans at Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial VA Hospital, and working in nursing roles at MGH, Emerson Hospital, and Newbury Court (CCRC) – she grew more aware and empathetic of the need for better Alzheimer’s care and education.
Wendy earned her Master’s degree in the FNP track from the School of Nursing at University of Texas at Austin, and her Bachelor’s degree from the School of Nursing at University of Massachusetts Amherst. While at UT Austin, Wendy dedicated her graduate research poster to Alzheimer’s screening recommendations for providers & researchers. Her research poster was accepted and presented at St. David's Medical Center's 17th Annual Conference and University of Texas Austin Center for Health IPE's Showcase. Wendy is fluent in English and conversationally in Mandarin Chinese and French.
