Fireside chat

I am excited to announce that our upcoming fireside chat and reception will feature a special guest: Dr. Deborah Trautman, the chief executive officer of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). I invite and encourage faculty and staff to participate in this informal discussion.

Please mark your calendar:
Tuesday, July 11 from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m.
New Sim Center Lobby, 6th Floor
Snacks and beverages will be provided for the casual reception.

This event will serve as an opportunity to discuss the ways in which our School may create an environment that strengthens relationships between research and academic health centers, as called for in AACN’s Manatt report—Advancing Healthcare Transformation. The report calls for transformation in the role of schools of nursing at academic health centers.

Dr. Trautman is visiting major academic health centers throughout the country, speaking with leaders in all the health sciences in order to have the benefits of such a transformation more fully understood.

Note that the location is in the lobby of our new simulation center!

I look forward to seeing you.
