JHSON Virtual Nursing Grand Rounds
"Never let a crisis go to waste" - Leading transformative change for gender and health equity globally
The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing in partnership with the Nu Beta at Large Chapter of Sigma will offer a monthly Virtual Nursing Grand Rounds Continuing Nursing Education Series, providing an educational program led by top researchers from around the world.
In this April Virtual Grand Round, Dr. Nancy Glass will address how the Covid-19 pandemic has served as a magnifier of health and gender inequities globally. These inequities can no longer be denied or blamed on unhealthy behaviors of underserved and marginalized population. The global crisis provides an opportunity to do things we did not think possible. The presentation and discussion will focus on transformation change in research and practice through changes in structure, norms, and leadership.
Nancy E. Glass, PhD, MPH, MS, RN is Associate Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health and Independence Chair in Nursing Education. Dr. Glass conducts clinical and community-based intervention research with diverse populations across multiple settings domestically and globally. Since 2002, Dr. Glass has served as Principal Investigator of nine federally funded multidisciplinary research projects (NICHD, NIMHD, CDC, NIMH, NINR, OWH) to improve safety, health, and economic security and address gender inequity in diverse community and clinic settings. Dr. Glass has also collaborated with global experts and donors (UNICEF, World Bank, U.S. Department of State, PRM) to implement and evaluate innovative primary prevention programs that challenge social norms that sustain violence against women in humanitarian settings (Somalia and South Sudan). She has also helped examine the prevalence of gender-based violence (GBV) in the three regions of Somalia (South Central, Puntland, and Somaliland) to inform GBV programs and service. Dr. Glass works to improve health care systems' response through a partnership that examines the feasibility and acceptability of ASIST-GBV to identify survivors of GBV in health settings with displaced and refugee populations in Kenya after developing the screening tool in Ethiopia, Uganda, and Colombia. All research collaborations have used mHealth technologies to deliver programs and to collect confidential and secure data, reach diverse populations, and provide tools and resources to health and social service providers. Dr. Glass is committed to collaborating with and mentoring colleagues, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students globally as well as partnering with community experts and organizations to improve health, safety, and economic stability for women, families, and communities.
