Elizabeth Sloand has been dedicated to improving the lives of children in vulnerable circumstances throughout her career. Her work as a nurse educator, scholar, and health care provider focuses on uninsured and underinsured children and youth in Baltimore, Haiti, and internationally. Her clinical leadership in primary care and public health have enabled SON students to provide episodic direct primary and preventive health care to impoverished families to rural southwest Haiti as part of their training. In recognition of her work in Haiti and domestically, she received the 2017 Audrey Hepburn Award for Contributions to Health and Welfare of Children by Sigma Theta Tau International. Closer to home, Dr. Sloand practices as a certified pediatric nurse practitioner, providing direct primary care services to uninsured/underinsured children and their families. She teaches and mentors nurse practitioner students in clinical and didactic courses. Dr. Sloand holds a joint appointment with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine's Department of Pediatrics, and collaborates interprofessionally on scholarly, educational, and administrative projects. Her publications appear in nursing, public health, and health education journals.
