  • Tamara Nau: collaborated with nursing leadership to develop policies and procedures for patient safety
  • Barbara Jabbusch: taught workshop on refining clinical nursing assessment
  • Dr. Ilene Schwartz, Ph.D., and Carol Davis, Ed.D.: taught autism education workshop and collaborated with colleagues in Psychiatric Department for improving diagnosis and interventions for autistic children
