Dr. Hodges goes bald for a cause

Hodges-Group Dr. Hodges with SON Supporters

The School of Nursing’s own Eric Hodges shaved his head to help kids with cancer and to support childhood cancer research. Thanks in large part to SON’s faculty and staff he raised $3,500, well beyond his original $1,000 goal.

Dr. Hodges is an assistant professor at the School of Nursing and also a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Nurse Faculty Scholar. For the last two years he grew a mustache to support health and environmental education through donorschoose.org. This year, he wanted to do something a little different, so he shaved his head to support St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
