Board of Overseers Spring 2017
On April 5, we hosted our Spring 2017 Board of Overseers Meeting dinner at the stunning Perry World House. Executive Director of Perry World House, Bill Burke-White, not only shared details on the work that he and his team are doing, but also impressed upon our volunteer leadership the active involvement of Penn Nursing students in many of their important initiatives. Nancy Biller, our Assistant Dean for Global Health Affairs discussed the ways in which Penn Nursing is advancing both global and local health. While those in the know refer to this as “glocal” health, it is clear that we are making a considerable impact. This was further supported with detailed presentations from Sandra Urusaro, Nu’19, and Lauren Winokur, Nu’17, GNu’19; two students who, through the unique Penn Nursing experience, have developed a passion for healthcare in our surrounding communities and all over the world.
