Congratulations to Marcia Van Riper, PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor and Chair of the Family Health Division, who was recently awarded a Fulbright Specialist Grant.

As a participant in the Fulbright Specialist Program, Van Riper will be hosted by the University of Navarre in Pamplona Spain from mid-November to mid-December 2015, where most of her time will be spent working with faculty and students in the School of Nursing.

In addition to giving lectures and seminars on genomics and family research, Van Riper will be working with faculty on a needs assessment and helping with the development of curricula materials. She will also use the time to continue her work collecting data for a cross-cultural study on adaptation and resilience in families of individuals with Down Syndrome.

Safe and productive travels to you, Marcia!
