Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON) faculty member Nancy E. Glass, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, has been appointed as full professor in Research and Education.
As an expert in public health, health disparities, intimate partner violence, and global health, Glass shares her knowledge as a nurse clinician, researcher, cross-discipline bridge builder, and an educator at JHUSON. She also serves as a global health scientist-advocate, working toward educating policymakers, thought leaders, the media, and the public about the importance of global health research.
Her continued journey and personal insight from around the world provide direct knowledge for students on the value of saving lives and protecting global health. “I have been inspired and supported by outstanding faculty, colleagues and students since I arrived as a student at the JHUSON.” Glass said. “This has allowed me to advance multidisciplinary research, practice, and education to prevent and respond to gender-based violence nationally and globally. It is indeed an honor and privilege to be promoted to Professor and continue my research in an environment of excellence.”
Through her practice as Associate Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health and Ambassador for Research America's Paul G. Rogers Society for Global Health Research, Glass focuses on clinical care, violence prevention, intervention, and health inequalities, particularly in developing countries.
She currently pursues her passion for global health in the Democratic Republic of Congo through Pigs for Peace and Rabbits for Resilience. Both animal husbandry microfinance programs were designed by Glass to help women and youth learn social and economic skills for their families and communities, aiding those who have suffered from severe trauma growing up in conflict areas.
