With the help of a recent donation of $191,500 from Susan and Andy Code, both University of Iowa graduates, the College of Nursing will launch health initiatives in Haiti and Swaziland.
College of Nursing Diversity Coordinator, Valerie Garr, MA, is a recipient of the 2018 UI Diversity Catalyst Seed Grant.
Garr is developing a new initiative called College of Nursing Networks and Engagement in Communities Through Service (CONNECTS), which builds stronger partnerships between the College of Nursing and targeted K-12 populations.
The Nursing Community Coalition recently hosted a Congressional Briefing on the opioid crisis in America, particularly to identify how the nursing profession saves lives and the role nurses play in helping patients afflicted by this issue.
