HOUSTON — The Texas Woman’s University Institute of Health Sciences-Houston Center will host the 11th Annual Parry Lectureship and Research Day on Friday, March 2. Dr. Nancy Kline, director of research and evidence-based practice for the department of nursing at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, will present the lecture, titled “Developing and Testing an Evidence-Based Protocol.”

The event will take place from 9 a.m. until noon in Lecture Hall 2120 of TWU’s Houston Center, located at 6700 Fannin St. There is no charge to attend the lecture, but participants are responsible for their own parking fees.
