Researchers to Enter Sigma Hall of Fame

Professor Jason Farley, PhD, MPH, FAAN, and Associate Dean Mona Shattell, PhD, RN, FAAN, have been selected for induction into the Sigma International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame for lifetime achievements in nursing, contributions to research, and mentoring of future nurse researchers.

“Congratulations to these nurse leaders who, through their research and work, have changed the trajectory of health and well-being for so many across the world,” says Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Dean Patricia Davidson, PhD, MEd, RN, FAAN. “Drs. Farley and Shattell are shining examples for the next generation and embodiments of what it means to be trailblazers for the profession.”

An internationally recognized expert in inpatient mental health nursing, Shattell studies the mental health of underserved populations, particularly among long-haul truckers. She focuses on therapeutic relationships, environments of care, nursing education, and psychosis. Shattell is the inaugural associate dean for faculty development, promoting advancement and retention and fostering an environment of diversity, inclusion, and mentorship. She is a thought leader, having published op-eds in the New York Times, the Atlantic, and many other periodicals.

Farley, director of the PhD program, is a key figure in global HIV prevention and care, working in South Africa to develop interventions against multi-drug resistant tuberculosis and HIV coinfection. In the U.S., his app PrEPme increases patient access to services that support HIV care and prevention. Farley is founder of the REACH Initiative, which provides capacity building, technical assistance, and clinical services for care and support of persons at risk of or living with HIV. He was named one of the 150 most influential people in HIV/AIDS care by the International Association of Providers in AIDS Care.

Farley and Shattell will be inducted at Sigma’s 31st International Nursing Research Congress in July, joining 15 current inductees from the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing.
