US-Sino Forum

More than 30 presentations by faculty from 15 U.S. and Chinese Universities are scheduled to be a part of the upcoming 2nd Annual US-Sino Forum: Advancing Nursing Research and Education Across the Globe.

Registration is still open for the three-day, in-depth conference on health care issues that will be held from March 9 to 11 at the Washington Duke Inn. The conference focuses on advancing nursing research and education and strengthening the exchange of ideas among health care leaders from around the world.

“Our global society requires collaboration between researchers and educators in order to reduce health disparities, manage chronic illnesses and prepare the nurse leaders of tomorrow in innovative ways that promote a globally engaged nursing community. Ultimately, this cooperation promotes better care for patients, families and communities,” said Catherine L. Gilliss, PhD, RN, FAAN, dean of Duke University School of Nursing. “It is an honor for Duke School of Nursing to serve as the host for a conference that will attract some of the best minds in nursing research and education who are dedicated to improving health care for all members of society.”

This forum is part of ongoing relationships and collaborations among researchers and faculty at Duke and around the world. These partnerships are part of an overall mission at Duke School of Nursing to promote the development of diverse and global perspectives in teaching, research and professional service.

Over the three days, the forum’s schedule will feature panel discussions, presentations and poster sessions. The three keynote speakers are:

Jacqueline Dunbar-Jacob, PhD, RN, FAAN, dean and Distinguished Service Professor of Nursing, professor of psychology, epidemiology and occupational therapy, University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing
Pamela R. Jeffries, PhD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, professor and associate dean for academic affairs, Johns Hopkins School of Nursing
Hu Yan, PhD, RN, dean and professor, Fudan University School of Nursing
