Hopkins Nursing Alum Among Afghan Ambush Casualties


Posted: 8/9/2010

Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON) alumnus Glen D. Lapp ’95, was one of ten medical aid workers who was ambushed and killed in Afghanistan last week, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer

“The Hopkins community shares in the grief over Glen’s death,” said JHUSON Dean Martha N. Hill, PhD, RN. “He was a dedicated nurse — both here and abroad.  The loss of Glen and his colleagues is not only a loss for the people of Afghanistan, but for all of us in the global health community.” 

Clinical instructor Krysia Hudson, MS, RN, BC, remembers Lapp as “one of the kindest students I’ve had the pleasure to know…this world was a richer place thanks to him.”

Lapp, 40, of Lancaster, PA, had been in Afghanistan since 2008 as part of the International Assistance Mission (IAM), one of the longest serving non-governmental organizations serving in that region.
