Stay Connected in your Region

by Lisa Kowal ’06
Regional Connection Chair

Philadelphia alumni gathered last fall to discuss a pilot project called Art and Healing; using visual art to decrease nursing stress and to help nurses reconnect with their nursing spirit. Present were (from left) Lisa Russell O’Shea, Alumni Office; Eileen MacMurtrie ’00; Alice McNewmar Hart ’65; Evie Karlsson Merritt ’66; Claire Whitfield Burwash ’05; Jodi Shaefer, Faculty; Yvonne Metoxen Brockman ’54.

From the east coast to the west coast, our alumni are giving their time to keep us connected through the Regional Connection program. The program gives alumni the opportunity to assist with recruiting students, welcoming new alumni to their area, networking with local alumni, and connecting to what’s happening at Hopkins.

Currently we have Regional Connection groups in Boston, Atlanta, San Diego, Maine, Wisconsin, and Texas. We want to expand our Regional Connection groups to more cities and states. Please contact the JH Nursing Alumni Office ([email protected] or 410-955-4285) or visit for more information about how you can ‘connect’ with your Hopkins colleagues.

We’re also updating the Alumni website ( and plan to have presentations of interest to our alumni. Please check in regularly to see what’s new and send suggestions of what you’d like to see on the page ([email protected]).
