State Appointment for Hodgson

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has appointed Penn Nursing’s Nancy Hodgson, PhD, RN, FAAN, the Anthony Buividas Endowed Term Chair in Gerontology, to his 35-member Long-Term Care Council.

The Council makes recommendations to improve the Commonwealth’s long-term services and support systems with respect to regulations, licensure, and financing for appropriate departments and agencies. It affords members the opportunity to directly impact the quality of care provided to older adults and persons living with disabilities. Hodgson’s appointment secures nursing and nursing education’s representation at the state policy level.
