Martha N. Hill, PhD, RN, dean of the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, is pleased to announce the school’s first Dean’s Lecture featuring award-winning journalist Suzanne Gordon. Ms. Gordon will present From Silence to Voice: Putting Nursing Center Stage at the school on Wednesday, September 24, 2003 at 4:00 p.m.
Ms. Gordon, author of five books and over 250 articles, writes about health care, nursing, and women’s issues. Her latest book, “From Silence to Voice: What Nurses Know and Must Communicate to the Public,” written with Bernice Buresh, provides guidance to nurses on how to get their message to the media and the public.
Ms. Gordon’s lecture will cover the public’s need to know about nursing, the public health implications of nursing’s invisibility, and how nurses can alter public perceptions about nursing.
“Envision how things would be if the voice and visibility of nursing were commensurate with the size and importance of nursing in health care.”
