Webinar: Future of Nursing 2020-2030 report

Presented by Greer Glazer, former dean of the College of Nursing and report committee member

Health equity is achieved when everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible. According to the recently released report, "The Future of Nursing 2020-2030: Charting a Path to Achieve Health Equity," nurses – who live and work at the intersection of health, education and communities – are well positioned to play a major role in addressing the underlying causes of poor health and reshaping the landscape of health equity over the next decade by expanding their roles, working in new settings and in new ways, and markedly expanding efforts to partner with communities and other sectors.

Greer Glazer, PhD, former University of Cincinnati College of Nursing dean, was one of 15 esteemed health care professionals from universities, health care systems and public health departments across the U.S. selected to author the report. In this webinar, Glazer will present how strengthening nursing capacity and expertise is critical to achieving health equity in the U.S. 

Join via Zoom on Oct. 13 at 4:30 p.m. Registration is not required.
