While Penn Nursing’s Innovating for Life and Living Campaign continues, the multi-city tour came to a close in New York City on February 11, 2020, where it highlighted the 30th anniversary of the School’s Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research (CHOPR) and efforts to raise $1 million for the Center’s future . The event featured Margaret Bond Simon Dean of Nursing, Antonia M. Villarruel, PhD, RN, FAAN , and a panel discussion led by CHOPR Founder and Director, Linda H. Aiken, PhD, RN, FAAN, FRCN .
The Elizabeth Wright Fund—which gave Penn Nursing its first student exchange program—has its roots in a time when post-operative hospital stays were longer, and when private duty nurses attended patients in the hospital as well as at home after discharge.
Penn Nursing’s West Philadelphia Women’s Day event will continue, thanks to a new grant from The Trustees’ Council of Penn Women (TCPW). Funding from TCPW will support Dr. Wendy Grube’s partnership with women from the medically underserved West Philadelphia community to investigate their most pressing health concerns and move forward with a second West Philadelphia Women’s Day event.
New gifts from Sandy Samberg, Nu’94, GNu’95, and her husband, Joe Samberg are supporting life changing experiences for Penn Nursing students, and opportunities for students to share those experiences with a wider audience. The Sambergs’ investments in the Global Impact Fund and the Nursing Story Slam will help our students make the most of their Penn education.
From rural areas of India to more locally in West Philadelphia, Penn Nursing’s Center for Global Women’s Health (CGWH) has an impact on health and healthcare on a global scale. In recognition of that leadership, an anonymous donor has made a $10,000 pledge, which will support the work of CGWH—at the direction of CGWH Director Dr. Wendy Grube—over the next several years.
A generous grant from The Arcadia Foundation is helping to pave the way for integrating the latest tech advancements into education at Penn Nursing. The new funding supports our School’s Learning Technology Fund, a fund that supports state-of-the-art simulation experiences and a dynamic educational curriculum to prepare Penn Nursing students with the tools and experiences they need to provide care.
