Students and parents from Frank W. Begley elementary school gathered March 22 to learn from UWindsor nursing students about physical and emotional well-being as part of a “Spring into Health” fair.
The fair is a component of a 12-week placement offered for third-year nursing students and forms an integral part of their curriculum since it teaches the students to understand, interact, and communicate effectively with youth in a community setting.
The Faculty of Nursing welcomed back alumna Nancy Edwards (BScN 1974) for a March 7 address entitled “Lessons learned about leadership and capacity-building: a 45-year career in public and global health.”
Dr. Edwards is a professor emeritus at the University of Ottawa and an author, most recently of Not One, Not Even One: A Memoir of Life-altering Experiences in Sierra Leone, West Africa, published by FriesenPress in 2022.
The Ontario Learn and Stay Grant will cover tuition for nursing students to improve health care in under-serviced regions, including Windsor.
A series of lectures on palliative care will honour the legacy of former nursing professor Jean Echlin.
