ENHP Day 2017 Highlights

  • Students and faculty from health sciences and nursing, education, and rehabilitation sciences presented their scholarly work totaling more than 80 presentations throughout the day.
  • Faculty research, funded through the college’s Seed and Sprout grant program, was presented. These activities represent the Institute of Translational Research’s mission to integrate health and education sciences with community engagement. They also provide opportunities for students to gain hands-on research experience while working closely with faculty.
  • Community Considerations keynote speaker Maggy Tomkins provided a compelling speech titled “When the Law is a Health Hazard.” Tomkins provided the audience with research findings supporting improved health outcomes, especially in reducing HIV infections, in countries with decriminalization of sex work, needle exchange programs, and legalization of drugs. Tomkins was a Fulbright Scholar in Residence at the University of Hartford in 1999-2000 and continues to teach the All University Curriculum course Epidemics and AIDS as well as two nursing courses online for the University.
  • Methodological Tensions keynote speaker Jacob Appel emphasized how sharing and discussing research failures can strengthen research and allow scholars to learn from past missteps. In sharing his experience, he counseled, “Probe deeply before locking in a research plan. Engage in exploratory, qualitative conversations with participants and partners and run operational pilots to unpack and identify risk.” Appel is co-author of two books about using rigorous research to learn what works and what doesn't in the fight against poverty: More Than Good Intentions and Failing in the Field.
  • Barbara Crane was awarded the “excellence through relevance” Faculty Service Award. “The recognition that has come to Dr. Barbara Crane is well deserved,” said Dean David H. Goldenberg. “Whether it is the department, the College, or the University, Barbara has always stepped forward to do her part…and then some, on behalf of us all. She is a much-valued colleague and we are fortunate to have her as a member of the College.”

The daylong event celebrated research, scholarship and partnership and provided students and faculty a platform to share ideas and recognize each other’s accomplishments.
