Larimer is a Dramatist Guild of America playwright, a bioethicist, and associate faculty for both the Medical Humanities & Health Studies program and the Applied Theatre, Film, & Television program at IUPUI. As a playwright bioethicist, she uses theatre as a vehicle for public health, incorporates applied theatre into health and medical education, and helps individuals tell their own narratives through verbatim theatre. Her focus is wherever theatre can be used to facilitate social justice, specifically in the direction towards health equity. Themes she has incorporated within scripts include the effects of war on health – particularly on combat veterans, long term effects of racism on health, stigmas and substance use disorder, the impact of Indiana’s history of eugenics on Hoosiers, and the difficulties of end-of-life decision-making. As a bioethicist, she has worked for the Marion County Public Health Department (MCPHD) on the Overdose Data to Action (OD2A) grant to help prevent overdoses in Indiana. She sits on the Overdose Fatality Review and Access to Care subcommittee for the MCPHD. She has also volunteered for the Eskenazi Palliative Care Group on the ‘More Than a Patient’ and ‘Random Acts of Art’ projects throughout the initial surge of Covid-19. She is a member of the IU Conscience Project, American Society for Bioethics and Humanities (ASBH), Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE), and is a playwriting and screenwriting instructor for the Indiana Prison Writers Workshop.
