Honor a Star/Diversity Award
Consider honoring a special person or persons at this year’s An Evening with the Stars celebration, 6-8 p.m. Thursday. November 10. Not only will that person receive recognition, but your support will help raise important scholarship funds for future Hopkins Nurses from our Baltimore community. Purchasing a star in someone’s honor leads to: Your tax-deductible gift directly benefiting JHSON’s Baltimore Talent Scholars Fund; the person you are honoring receiving a notification letter from JHSON; that person’s name displayed at this year’s event; and that person’s name included in this year’s event program.
And while you’re there, please take advantage of the opportunity to nominate a colleague for the School of Nursing Diversity Award.
Alumni Community Week Grand Rounds
In celebration of Alumni Community Week, we welcome JHSON alumni Diana Baptiste, ’13, Binu Koirala, ’19, and PhD candidate Sabrina Elias, 11:30-1 p.m. Thursday, September 29, to discuss psychosocial, environmental, and social factors impacting cardiovascular risk among ethnic minority groups living in the United States. The Virtual Nursing Grand Rounds Series will offer attendees one free education credit upon completion of a post-event quiz after each session, with the goal of fulfilling the JHSON’s mission of providing lifelong learning for health care professionals within the community.
Health Equity Through Shared Decision Making
Nurses are critical to solving our most pressing and persistent health challenges. The social reckoning and ongoing pandemic have highlighted opportunities for nurse leaders, clinicians, and researchers to drive structural changes for their unique contexts. Responding to evolving imperatives of the nursing profession, this event will explore the role of nurses in promoting equity and in dismantling practices that perpetuate racism and oppression. Attendees to Cocktails & Conversations: Achieving Health Equity through Shared Decision Making, 6-8 p.m. Friday, September 30, will enjoy cocktails and other refreshments as they engage in a peer dialogue about ways to integrate principles of social justice into nursing practice and health policy.
Built to Scale: Customer Discovery
Customer discovery is a critical, yet often overlooked, tool for moving research into practice. The methodology involves identifying and understanding potential customers’ needs and pain points. At 10 a.m. Thursday, October 13, join guests Ricky Venters and AJ Donelson, who draw on their extensive experience in the business field to share insights on how customer discovery can help transform a vision of an evidence-based intervention into a validated and scalable model.
The Built to Scale series, offered via Zoom through the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing RESILIENCE Center, explores challenges and successes in scaling evidence-based health interventions.
On the Pulse: Anesthesia
In 1917, the Johns Hopkins Hospital School of Anesthesiology became the institution’s first official anesthesia training program for nurses. In 1921, one of the earliest students was Olive Berger, a nurse from New Jersey who would become a pioneer and leader in nurse anesthesia education. Learn more of the history and hear from current JHSON students in “Then and Now of Hopkins Nursing Anesthesia,” a new post for the On the Pulse blog.
Run for Marian House
Marian House is one of the SON’s community partners, providing housing for clients—mostly women—following incarceration, a period of housing instability, and/or substance use treatment. They are often being reunited with children. Marian House provides wrap-around services to get them back on their feet. The 5K race, this year on September 24 (7:30 a.m. registration; 9 a.m. race), is its biggest fundraiser.
