Dr Mollie Cummins:
Congratulations to Mollie Cummins. Mollie created and is voluntarily maintaining a web site called itepcovid.com, as a free and public means for sharing nursing informatics resources related to COVID-19. It was created in response to an early identified need for low-barrier, rapid information sharing identified in discussion by nursing informatics leaders (members of the Informatics & Technology Expert Panel of AAN). The web site is now sponsored and endorsed by the Alliance for Nursing Informatics and the American Nursing Informatics Association. The site has been viewed over 5,000 times since its launch, by visitors in 43 different countries.
Dr. Michelle Litchman:
Michelle Litchman was interviewed on CNN’s Go There about insulin access in this 12 minute segment titled “Inflated insulin costs lead to death or debt dilemma” in the US. You can find the link here: https://www.facebook.com/cnn/videos/572233520072085/
Dr. Kristin Cloyes:
Kristin Cloyes is one of six recipients of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Leadership in Ethics Education Award from the David Eccles School of Business. She and her colleagues received this award for their “successful efforts to create new ethics-related courses, to integrate new business ethics content into existing courses to mentor students on ethics initiatives, and to help make business ethics a permanent fabric of our business school and other University of Utah academic programs and curricula.” Congratulations, Kristin!
Dr. Leissa Roberts:
Leissa Roberts received the Distinguished Service Award for an American College of Nurse Midwives. This award was created to recognize a midwife or other professional for an unusual and exemplary effort in the field of community services, innovation in midwifery practice, education, or research. This is in recognition of her “years of service as an educator and a mentor, leadership in faculty practice, and development of the‘Coping with Labor’ Scale.” Congratulations, Leissa!
Dr. Deborah Morgan:
Deborah Morgan presented the Geriatric Grand Rounds last week – her presentation was titled “COVID-19 & the mental health of older adults: Challenges and Opportunities.”
