School of Nursing dean Casey Shillam will serve as a panelist for the 2020 Oregon Health Forum’s “Nurses Out Front: The Future of Nurse-Driven Health Reform,” a Zoom event on Friday, December 11, at 10 a.m. In this first-ever all-nurse panel ever hosted by the OHF, Shillam will be sharing about the work the School of Nursing is doing on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and will be discussing both local and national policy changes needed to create a diverse nursing workforce reflecting the demographics of our population.
All faculty and staff are invited to attend for free by registering at this link and using the password NURSE2020.
From the event website: “Nurses possess unique health reform priorities forged by front-line experiences and patient and community engagement but they have not always been full partners in health care reform decision-making. This event explores nurses’ top health reform priorities — including addressing systemic inequities — and considers how they will continue to shape state and federal health policy.”
