BAYADA Renews Gift
June 10, 2014
The College of Nursing and Health Professions is pleased to announce that its gift from BAYADA Home Health Care has been renewed for another five years, until 2019. BAYADA has pledged a generous sum of $200,000, to be paid to the College in $40,000 increments at the end of each calendar year, beginning in 2014. This gift has been designated for the BAYADA Award for Technological Innovation in Nursing Education and Practice, which is promoted each year by the College and bestowed upon two winners at the Drexel University Nursing Education Institute (DUNEI) conference.
BAYADA Home Health Care’s initial gift to the College resulted in the establishment of the BAYADA Award for Technical Innovation in Nursing Education and Practice in 2004. Two separate $10,000 cash prizes are awarded annually to applicants who have made a significant contribution to nursing education or practice via the development or adoption of a new technology.

Mark Baiada, BAYADA Home Health Care provides nursing, rehabilitative, therapeutic, hospice, and assistive care services to children, adults, and seniors in the comfort of their homes.
