Great work to Laura Britton and Jeehae Chung, who are the inaugural recipients of the Sarah Frances Russell PhD Student Writing Awards.
Hats off to Chantel Dawkins and Emily Gitau, who have been selected for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration’s Minority (SAMHSA) Fellowship Program for Youth. The program provides funding to increase the amount of culturally aware mental health professionals who can deliver behavioral health services to diverse populations.
Being named a SAMHSA fellow is an honorable distinction for which recipients will likely be known throughout their career. We are so proud of Chantel and Emily!
Announcing the Health & Humanities Exchange Conference
November 11-12, 2016
Hyde Hall, Institute for Arts & Humanities
The Health and Humanities Exchange (HHEX) is a SON-sponsored event that will spotlight health-related research and education initiatives at UNC-CH, Duke, Wake Forest, and other regional programs that draw upon the arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. This event will introduce faculty and students to research going on at UNC and beyond, provide a space for generative conversation, and foster collaboration in future initiatives. An additional aim of this meeting is to consider ways to collaborate across CHCI members, with the North Carolina centers taking an active leadership role.
Congratulations to Dr. Yin Li, who on Tuesday successfully defended her dissertation titled “Primary Care Nurses: Their Value in the U.S. Primary Care System.”
Yin confidently handled many difficult questions while demonstrating her depth of knowledge on her topic. One of her committee members described the timeliness of her dissertation is “impeccable,” given the ongoing changes in our health care system. Great job, Dr. Li!
Doctoral student, Amber Kimball, BSN, RN, has hit the ground running since starting her research training. She has already been invited to serve on a panel discussion at today’s 8th Annual Dimensions of Diversity Conference, “Body Image: Accepting the Best Work of Art – The Human Body.”
The Association of Nursing Students (ANS) invites you to join us for our October Membership Meeting on Friday, October 14th 12p-1p in Carrington Hall Room 1.

Students can fulfill a research practicum for the master’s degree through this opportunity, and would have the opportunity to contribute as an author of a published manuscript. Please contact Dr. Shawn Kneipp if interested, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Huge congratulations to Lindsey Horrell, who recently received a Notice of Grant Award from the National Institute of Nursing Research for the success of her F31 application. The award will fund her research on the preferred communication cues of lower-socioeconomic individuals living with chronic illness.
Hats off to you, Lindsey!
