Flores Selected for National Workshop

The Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science (Council) has selected Penn Nursing’s Dalmacio Dennis Flores, PhD, ACRN, Assistant Professor, as one of six early career nurse scientists to participate in the 2019 Duck-Hee Kang Memorial Mentored Workshop. The competitively chosen group of postdoctoral and new faculty will receive research mentoring from senior nurse scientists during a one-day workshop on October 22, 2019 in Washington, DC.

The Council is an open membership initiative of the American Academy of Nursing whose mission is promoting better health through nursing science. The workshop will provide the opportunity to have a submitted research grant proposal critiqued by a senior investigator, as well as to participate as a member of a National Institutes of Health style mock review panel.

Presented by the Council’s Early Career Special Interest Group, the workshop honors the late Duck- Hee Kang, PhD, RN, FAAN, who was the Lee and Joseph D. Jamail Distinguished Professor at UTHealth School of Nursing, part of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Dr. Kang, who died unexpectedly in 2016, was highly regarded as a biobehavioral nurse scientist and an outstanding research mentor to those at the start of their career. She was inducted into the American Academy of Nursing in 2003.
