The Helen Kelly Annual Forensic Conference is named after one of our leading pioneers of forensic work in Wisconsin. For more than 20 years, Helen J. Kelly was at the heart of caring for victims of sexual assault and has touched many lives in her career.

She worked as a sexual assault nurse examiner at the Sexual Assault Treatment Center at Aurora Sinai Medical Center. She also helped train forensic nurses and others in the community, including students at the Medical College of Wisconsin and recruits at the Milwaukee Police Academy.

Helen lost her battle with cancer in February of 2009. We find her spirit and devotion in all the amazing work we do today.
