About Me

Dale Jafari, DNP, FNP-BC, formerly Dale Greenhawk Reddish, is a nurse practitioner with more than 40 years of experience in women's health. She welcomes women age 12 and older to the University of Maryland Shore Medical Group's women's health gynecology practice at UM Shore Regional Health.

She provides a wide range of services including:

  • Well-woman examinations
  • Contraceptive management
  • Menopausal management
  • Colposcopy
  • Pessary management
  • Referral to appropriate primary care or specialty providers

Jafari has participated in a number of speaking engagements for topics related to women's health in our communities. She is the past president of the Nurse Practitioner Association of Maryland (NPAM), former chair of the Advanced Practice Council and a member of the Regional Medical Council for the medical group at Shore Regional Health.

Jafari has been an adjunct faculty professor at Wilmington University in New Castle, Delaware, since 1998. Since 2018, she has been an associate professor at Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland. She was named to the faculty at the University of Maryland School of Nursing in 2014.

Jafari is active in the legislative committee for NPAM and is co-chair of the Maryland Action Coalition on removing barriers to practice and care. She is a graduate of Chesapeake College's MacQueen Gibbs Willis School of Nursing in Wye Mills, Maryland, and completed her undergraduate studies at Wilmington University in 1996. She is a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society. She obtained her Masters of Science in Nursing degree, along with a Family Nurse Practitioner Certificate, in 1998.

In 2018, Jafari graduated from the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa with a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. Her scholarly project focused on a risk reduction intervention for HPV-related cancers in rural Maryland. The direct provider-to-patient intervention with recommendation for the HPV vaccine increased the percentage of women in the practice who initiated the vaccine series.

Jafari is medical director of the Talbot County Child Advocacy Center. A native of Maryland's Eastern Shore, she makes her home in Easton with her husband and their St. Bernard. They enjoy traveling, spending time with their granddaughters and relaxing on the water.
