LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 6, 2014) — Frances Hardin-Fanning, assistant professor at the University of Kentucky College of Nursing, and Morehead State University graduate, received the 2013 American Public Health Association (APHA) New Investigator Award for Public Health Nursing at the association’s annual conference in Boston in November 2013.

 

Hardin-Fanning’s research interests include behavioral and environmental strategies aimed at improving dietary habits among rural Appalachian residents who have difficulty accessing healthy food.

 

Hardin-Fanning developed a community-based strategy to help people living in rural areas of Kentucky have better access to healthy foods.  She has worked closely with the professionals in the Breathitt County Cooperative Extension Office and Robinson Center and with community members to test this program, which she plans to put into place in other rural counties

 

Hardin-Fanning also accepted the 2013 Spirit of Philanthropy Award for the Delta Psi Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society at the international conference in Indianapolis. She is the chair of the Delta Psi service committee and coordinated multiple charitable drives for local, national and international organizations that assist veterans, children and underserved populations.

 

Hardin-Fanning graduated from Morehead State University’s associate degree nursing program in 1997 and completed a doctorate (Ph.Dl) in Nursing at UK in 2011.  She currently teaches undergraduate nursing research and conducts independent studies with graduate nursing and nutrition students. Hardin-Fanning is also the Southern Nursing Research Society liaison for the state of Kentucky, an advisory board member for the UK Nutrition Education Program, a member of the Kentucky Military Families and Caregivers Network, a National End-of-Life Nursing for Veterans Trainer and the chair of the American Public Health Association Public Health Nursing Policy Resolution Committee.
