Fellow Named 2019-2020 Jonas Policy Scholar

The American Academy of Nursing recently announced that six individuals – including Penn Nursing Postdoctoral Fellow Darina Petrovsky, PhD, RN – were selected to participate in the newly re-envisioned Academy Jonas Policy Scholars Program.  Petrovsky is a Fellow in the NewCourtland Center for Transitions and Health.

Funded by a generous grant from the Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare, one of three impact areas within Jonas Philanthropies, the program provides scholars with a two-year experience focused on mentoring, policy, and engagement. New features of the program include the addition of thought-provoking Peer-to-Peer on Policy webinars, a three-day Policy Immersive located in Washington, DC, and the formation of the National Policy Mentoring Council. 

The new cohort of six Academy Jonas Policy Scholars will work closely with the Academy’s policy staff to promote the policy priorities of the Academy.
