Additionally, she was recognized as the president of Compassion Med International, which supports health outreaches around the world. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Davison has volunteered with the NC Farmworkers Health Program, screening and vaccinating these essential workers.

In addition, Dr. Woodley received the award for best article among all research articles published by Nursing Education Perspectives in 2020. A committee of Editorial Board members made the section based on the following criteria: significance to nursing education, clarity and quality of writing, engaging writing style, sound conceptualization, forward thinking, depth and scope of innovation, and uniqueness. “Acculturating into Nursing for Hispanic/Latinx Baccalaureate Nursing Students: A Secondary Data Analysis” can be found here.
