Kudos to Associate Professor Jean Davison, who submitted the winning proposal for the 2019 Bill and Mary Lou Booth Community Service and Outreach Award.
The purpose of her project is to provide health services to farmworkers through the NC Farmworkers Project Mobile Health Clinic under the Office of Rural Health. The goals are to:
- Provide health screenings and health outreaches to farmworkers in Eastern Carolina to assist in health recovery from Hurricanes Florence and Michael during the April – October 2019 agricultural season.
- Define and disseminate best practices for nurse practitioners and nursing students to work with the farmworkers and assist with hurricane recovery and management of chronic disease.
Dr. Davison will be joined on the project by two FNP students.
The Bill and Mary Lou Booth Community Service and Outreach Fund was established by the Booths in the UNC School of Nursing Foundation in 2016 with the aim of aiding students and faculty who wish to engage in community service for the betterment of the health and welfare of North Carolinians. The award proposal process was administered by Tom Bush, Assistant Dean for Practice, and selected by committee.
