    Wishes for a Peaceful Break

    As we come to the end of another challenging year, one point remains clear—the College of Nursing and Health Professions is resolute about striving for health equity, understanding how social and structural determinants of health and racism impact wellbeing and longevity.

    Journeying through 2021, we saw our students, faculty, professional staff and alumni lead in various ways, provide compassionate care and lend their expertise to serve Drexel and surrounding communities. We also saw our recent graduates become leaders in their respective care and service settings.

    So this year, our message is simple—thank you. Thank you to the doers, the makers and shakers, to researchers and research teams, to our finance, operations and facility and marketing and communication teams, our technology specialists, academic advisors, student services team and CNHP’s community partners, legal, HR, alumni relations and development representatives and external advisors. Thank you to our students, faculty, professional staff, preceptors, alumni and to all who boldly endeavor each day to be better and more inclusive than the day before.

    To all of you, thank you for making us whole and for your passion for preparing the next generation of change agents in the form of nurses, health professionals and food specialists.

    Wishing you Peace, Joy, Health and All the Best,

    Laura N. Gitlin, PhD, FGSA, FAAN

    DiMaria-Ghalili receives Distinguished Educator designation

    Rose Ann DiMaria-Ghalili, PhD, professor of PhD Nursing and associate dean for Interprofessional Research and Development, received the Distinguished Educator in Gerontological Nursing designation from the National Hartford Center of Gerontological Nursing Excellence.

    The reason this program was created is in response to the "rapidly growing older adult population and the urgent need to prepare the future nurse workforce to care for an aging population." National Hartford Center of Gerontological Nursing Excellence recognizes that "it is imperative to have well-prepared nurse educators not only with knowledge and skills in care of older adults, but also with teaching competence so that they can foster positive attitudes toward older adults and actively engage learners at all levels."

    Congratulations, Dr. DiMaria-Ghalili!
