    12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
    Three Parkway, Room 1043 or via live webcast

    Mary Dozier, PhD and members of her lab study the development of young children who have experienced adversity. Together, they have developed an evidence-based intervention, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-up (ABC), that is intended to enhance children’s ability to regulate behavior, emotions and physiology. Each of the three components of the ABC intervention targets a specific issue that was identified as critical through more basic studies of attachment and stress neurobiology. Mary and the lab have conducted a series of randomized clinical trials to assess the effectiveness of the intervention. ABC has proven successful in enhancing attachment, cortisol production, emotion expression and executive functioning.

  • Graduate nursing faculty members Bobbie Posmontier, PhD and Kathleen Fisher, PhD

    Drexel Delegates Visit Hong Kong University

    Kathleen Fisher, PhD, professor in graduate and advance practice nursing, and Bobbie Posmontier, PhD, associate professor and department chair for the PhD in nursing program, traveled as delegates to Hong Kong University (HKU) for the 8th Hong Kong International Nursing Forum cum 2018 international Council on Women's Health Issues Congress.

    They were greeted by a hand-waving robot in a high fidelity simulation lab that also featured two 3G manikins. To enhance experiential clinical learning in both a hospital and other healthcare environments, four community settings were utilized including: an 1) elderly home, 2) rehabilitated home, 3) public housing flat, and 4) a home in poverty. The lab also included a state-of-the art virtual reality experience that provides students with a disturbing simulation of a patient experiencing visual and auditory hallucinations.

    Fisher and Posmontier also had the opportunity to meet Professor Chia-Chin Lin, head of the HKU School of Nursing and network with Dr.s Polly Chan and Patsy Chua Pui Hing about future student and faculty learning exchanges and research. HKU faculty were very warm and welcoming and officially honored all delegates during the opening of the Congress with a bagpipe processional. The keynotes and plenary sessions included notable and dynamic speakers with topics such as sexual assault, digital technology, usable research, global health (non-communicable diseases and climate change) and mothering a seriously ill child.

  • 2018-2019 Staff Award Winners: Cecile McDuffie, Caroline Feenan, Denise Mielechowski and Joy Terrell

    Congratulations Staff Award Nominees and Winners

    Congratulations to our Staff Award winners and nominees!


    Cecile McDuffie, Sunshine Award

    The Sunshine Award recognizes the staff member you can always count on to brighten your day with kind words or bring a smile to your face.

    More than 25 colleagues were nominated for this award. Several received multiple nominations attesting to the fact that:

    Their smiles brighten rooms . . .
    They are ready with a bright smile and a warm hello . . .
    They create a pleasant and fun work environment . . . and that
    They are generous and kind.

    Cecile is all that and a bag of chips! She was selected because she is, “. . . literally the funniest person here at CNHP – a comedienne! She makes every day better – even when we are down in the dumps.” 

    Joy Terrell, Peacemaker Award

    The Peacemaker Award recognizes a staff member who knows just what to say or do to keep the work atmosphere calm and peaceful.

    Several nominees, proposed for consideration of this and other awards, were recognized by colleagues because of their wonderful attitudes that really make the best of each situation. They are calming forces in the chaos that often reflects deadlines for numerous projects. They take the time to meditate over their lunch periods to refresh for the afternoon. They are tactful and calm when expressing truth with dignity and poise while able to deflect conflict. One staff member stood out from the crowd. According to those who nominated Joy, “She is level headed and logical and co-workers can always count on her to calm them down or help get it together when frustrated. Her experience and demeanor always bring a sense of calmness, even on the craziest of days. Joy knows just what to say and do to create a calm and peaceful environment. She is a warm, thoughtful and insightful colleague who pays close attention to body language and tone and has a gentle way about her that draws you in closely.” Her service as a member of the Dean’s Advisory Board for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has not gone unnoticed.

    Denise Mielechowski, Service Award

    The Service Award recognizes a staff member who is always there for support and serves as a mentor to their colleagues. No job is too big or too small. You can always count on them.

    It is no doubt that all nominees go above and beyond what’s in their job descriptions to have been nominated, but of the 32 people submitted for this award, Denise received six nominations. Frequently asking" how can I help?" and despite what may be on her plate, Denise is a tireless worker who doesn't rest until a project is done. One of her many strengths is the ability to develop best practices for processes to better serve students, alumni, professional staff and faculty from a myriad of departments in the College and across the University. She continuously seeks out new knowledge and skills and, in the more than 15 years she has been in the department, has always been a role model as well as a mentor to anyone who will accept her guidance. Denise's colleagues say her willingness to assist others and her commitment to Drexel University is unequaled and she is a true asset to any program.

    Caroline Feenan, Wonderworker Award

    The Wonder Worker Award recognizes a staff member who shows that no matter how much work they have on their plate, they always get it done.

    Of the 27 co-workers nominated for this award, one person received no less than 22 nominations! Clearly Caroline's colleagues think she possesses super powers since many of them referred to her as “Wonder Woman,” working her magic to ‘troubleshoot and fix’ problems. She served the entire College for years without fail—no matter what the circumstances.” Caroline consistently goes above and beyond to help faculty, is truly amazing, and nominators note, "we would be lost without her!" Those who proposed Caroline, the “Queen of Blackboard Learn,” mention that no one works longer and harder. One nominator even mentioned living with her and knowing how many hours she works at home!

  • Building Procedures and Security

    Dear CNHP Students, Faculty, and Staff,

    As we begin the Winter Term, please keep the following information in mind:

    Three Parkway Reminders:

    Please keep your Drexel DragonCard with you at all times. You will need to swipe your DragonCard on the Drexel card reader located at the front security desk every time you enter or reenter the building.

    The stairwells in Three Parkway are for use in emergencies only. Please use the elevators to move from floor to floor unless it is an emergency situation, as use of the stairwells triggers the building’s emergency alarm system.

    Please do not congregate in the first floor lobby.

    All students are expected to leave Three Parkway by 10:00 p.m.

    Security Procedures:

    Please report any suspicious activity by calling Philadelphia Police at 911 or Drexel Security at 215-895-2222. If you are in the Bellet Building or New College Building, please call Hahnemann Security at 215-762-7111.

    Drexel Public Safety offers a walking security escort service Monday through Friday between 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Upon request, security officers are available to accompany individuals to their destination within the boundaries of Broad Street to 17th Street and Vine Street to Market Street. Please phone in your request and leave a voice mail at 215-852-7996. All requests must be called in at least 30 minutes in advance of the escort time.

    Hahnemann Security also offers a walking security escort service from Bellet, New College Building, and the Hospital from dusk until dawn. You can contact them at 215-762-7111 or ask any Hahnemann Security Officer.

    Thank you,
