National AAPI Leader in House at FSU Nursing: Associate Dean Dr. Ahn Leading Research Growth

The Florida State University College of Nursing is pleased to announce that Dr. Eugenia Millender, associate professor at the College of Nursing, and Co-Founder & Co-Director for the Center of Population Sciences for Health Equity, received a prestigious invitation to speak with The White House on health equity and access in Florida!

In many ways, the last two years have been tumultuous for everyone. With the onset of the COVID pandemic and heightened awareness of racial injustice all around us, such transition, chaos, and blatant hatred has caused many of us to take a deeper look at ourselves and the systems to which  disproportionate outcomes are bred. As we march forward, we can continue with the confidence that every moment in time is but a season—a time to heal, a time to break down, and a time to build up. April, National Minority health Month, is a catalyst for continued strides in the long march to health equity.

Thirty middle and high school students got to experience a day in the life of Florida State University nursing students through a special event set up by the FSU College of Nursing and the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Bend.

Sigma Theta Tau International, the International Nursing Honor Society was established in 1922. It promotes health and illness prevention through the advancement of nursing leadership, scholarship, and administration.

College of Nursing is beginning an exciting partnership with the College of Medicine’s Science Students Together Reaching Instructional Diversity & Excellence (SSTRIDE) Program.

Congratulations to Associate Professor & Associate Director and Co-Founder of the Center for Population Sciences and Health Equity, Dr. Eugenia Millender, on being inducted into the latest Class of Fellows in the American Academy of Nursing (FAAN)!

Money from the National Institute of Health will be given to the College of Nursing, Medicine and Psychology at Florida State University. The $12.8 million grant will help to recruit six underrepresented minority researchers committed to promoting diversity and inclusion.
