Professor Barbara Mark Recognized for Mentoring Researchers

At a recent AcademyHealth meeting, the Interdisciplinary Research Group on Nursing Issues (IRGNI) awarded its Research Mentorship Award to our very own Dr. Barbara Mark. This very prestigious award is interdisciplinary in nature, and formally acknowledges the contributions of a senior scientist to the career development of young investigators in nursing and health services research.

The Mentorship Award committee was greatly impressed with Barbara’s long and dedicated commitment to supporting new scholars in the field of nursing and health services research. On a personal note, the Chair of IRGNI, Dr. Joanne Spetz, commented that she had personally benefited from Barbara’s wisdom, advice, and support over the years.

Dr. Mark has developed an extraordinary research program and has made a landmark contribution to our understanding of the organization, delivery, and outcomes of nursing care. However, this award extends her reach by recognizing her exceptional abilities to give to others, and to mentor scholars at all stages of their research career development.

Please join our School of Nursing in congratulation Dr. Barbara Mark for this recognition by her peers.
