Published: Jul 22, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 22, 2014) — Ellen Hahn, professor at the University of Kentucky College of Nursing has been appointed as one of 12 ambassadors for the Friends of the National Institute of Nursing Research, an independent non-profit group advocating for nursing science on behalf of the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR).

 

The inaugural group of ambassadors consists of nursing and health care leaders who possess stellar research, leadership, and communication skills. These individuals will foster political, social, and professional awareness of the work of NINR and its research priorities. 

 

Among the group's goals are educating congressional leaders and others within their respective communities, and advocating for improved funding by highlighting the impact nursing research has on the health and well-being of all Americans.

 

“NINR-funded research is critically important today more than ever as we experience shifts in lifestyle and demographics in the U.S.," Hahn said. "NINR-funded scientists conduct research across the entire spectrum spanning from wellness to managing the symptoms of chronic disease to the end of life, research where individuals, families and communities live and receive care.”
