“As the faculty advisor to Student Nurses at Penn for over 20 years, I continue to be extremely proud of our students and their dedication to academic excellence, community service and leadership,” said Diane Spatz, PhD, Professor of Perinatal Nursing and the Helen M. Shearer Term Professor of Nutrition. “I love being able to nominate our students for awards and see them be recognized for their contributions!”
