The David Jowers Lecture is funded through an endowment established by the family and friends of David C. Jowers to enhance awareness of important health care issues, and especially care quality and safety.
The 2014 lecture "Comorbidity and Mental Health: Impact on Hospital Outcomes" will be presented by Dr. Nancy Hanrahan, the Dr. Lenore H. Kurlowicz Term Associate Professor of Nursing at the Unversity Pennsylvania School of Nursing.
For more than a year, Emory has partnered with Coursera to offer free, not-for-credit, massive open online courses, or MOOCs. This type of online education has been popular — with some 241,000 students from around the world registering for Emory’s Coursera courses.
This fall Emory expands its Coursera presence once more by rolling out several new courses, including a course on Childbirth: A Global Perspective, by School of Nursing Professor Lynn Sibley, set to start October 1.
Dr. Dian Dowling Evans, Assistant Clinical Professor, was named one of the top 10 ER nursing professors by NursePractitionerSchools.com.
