Posted: 7/15/2009

Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON) professor Jacquelyn C. Campbell, PhD, RN, FAAN, has been named to a three-year term on the Institute of Medicines (IOM) Board on Global Health. 

Campbell holds the Anna D. Wolf Chair of the Department of Community-Public Health at JHUSON, and is a national leader in research and advocacy in the field of domestic and intimate partner violence (IPV).  She has served on various community, national, and government boards and committees, and her expertise is sought internationally by policymakers who seek to explore IPV and its effect on communities and families.

As a member of the board, Campbell will develop, plan, and shape IOM committee reports that review global research, including nursing research, and make policy recommendations for global health. Notes Campbell, "I will also be able to suggest our doctoral students as student interns for these committees when [research projects] address an area of research related to their own, which can prove to be an invaluable experience for them." 

The Board on Global Health is concerned with advancing the health of populations worldwide. This involves addressing developing country health issues, enhancing the United States role in global health, and addressing health issues that have implications for United States health policy.
