Join us for Nursing Research Day 2017
Throughout the day, faculty, students, and community partners will lead concurrent oral and poster presentation sessions that showcase findings from innovative research and evidence-based projects that improve health and quality and quality care.
Our keynote speaker is Cindy Anderson, PhD, CRNP, ANEF, FNAP, FAHA, FAAN who will present Epigenetics and Heritable Risk for Preeclampsia and Cardiovascular Disease. Dr. Anderson is an Associate Professor and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Educational Innovation in the College of Nursing at The Ohio State University. Her research is focused on the study of hypertension in pregnancy and the influence that the maternal pregnant environment has on future development of hypertension in offspring. Recent investigation is targeted towards gene-environment interactions that increase heritable risk for preeclampsia, including the study of disrupted gene function due to changes in DNA methylation. From her early findings in animal studies through her clinical studies in pregnant women, her goals are to improve health outcomes of women and their children through early screening and identification of individuals at risk for preeclampsia across the lifespan. Her keynote presentation will also be webcast live.
Registration will be available in mid-March
