TWU’s Davis receives award from Southern Nursing Research Society




January 7, 2008 - DENTON — The Southern Nursing Research Society has named Dr. Gail Davis, professor of nursing at Texas Woman’s University, the 2008 recipient of the John A. Hartford Geriatric Nursing Research Award.

Dr. Davis will receive this award in recognition for her research on older adults during the society’s annual conference scheduled Feb. 21 - 23 in Birmingham, Ala.

“My research with older adults, which focuses on testing interventions for the improvement of pain self-management and for the maintenance of bone health, has been extremely gratifying,” said Dr. Davis, B.S.N., M.Ed., Ed.D. “My hope is that my research will add to the knowledge that nurses and other healthcare professionals can use in their practice. Receiving this award from the Southern Nursing Research Society is, for me, a distinct honor.”

The John A. Hartford Geriatric Nursing Research Award is given annually to recognize the contributions of an individual whose established program of research has enhanced the science and practice of geriatric nursing in the Southern region. It is one of only five awards the Southern Nursing Research Society gives during its annual conference.

The Southern Nursing Research Society is an organization devoted to promoting the development and utilization of nursing research in all health care agencies and educational settings throughout a 14 state region in the Southern United States, plus the Caribbean, Latin America and South America.

According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, TWU’s College of Nursing is the fifth-largest in the U.S., and the TWU nursing doctoral program is the largest in the country.
