Karine is one of the 2019 AWARE Award winners!

Karine Zakroczymski, RN, BSN, SANE-A is the creator and the manager of the Allina Forensic Nurse Examiner Program that provides sexual assault, domestic violence, child, abuse, elder abuse, and strangulation examinations to 10 hospitals across the metro and greater metro area. In addition she provides direction to four additional Allina Sexual Assault Programs throughout Minnesota. Karine’s programs participate in nine county Sexual Assault Response Teams (SARTS) working to improve services to victims of sexual violence in each of the associated counties.
Karine has 46 years of nursing experience, most of which have involved emergency and/or forensic nursing. Karine is nationally certified as a sexual assault nurse examiner and teaches the adolescent and adult sexual assault nurse examiner class. She is also the coordinator and one of the instructors of the Advanced Forensic Nurse Course, a 24 hour course presented by the Forensic Nurse Program focused on domestic violence, elder abuse, and non-sexual child abuse.
Join us for our annual AWARE event to celebrate the work of community members, advocates, policy makers, law enforcement, criminal justice professionals, and philanthropic partners who are demanding justice for victims/survivors. We will honor the work of these leaders, who are committed to preventing and addressing sexual violence in Minnesota.

This fun event will also include a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, spirit station and themed photo booth.
