Three nursing faculty to be inducted into Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame
Professors Deborah Koniak-Griffin, Adey Nyamathi and Linda Sarna of the UCLA School of Nursing will be inducted into the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame for Sigma Theta Tau International. Created in 2010, this honor recognizes nurse researchers who have achieved significant and sustained national or international recognition, and whose research has improved the profession and the people it serves.
Koniak‐Griffin has completed highly successful research on combatting health disparities among young parents from ethnic and racial minority groups. Three of her interventional programs were selected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as evidence-based models.
Nyamathi’s research focuses on coping and adjustments to illness, health promotion and risk reduction with vulnerable homeless and drug-addicted adults and adolescents at risk for HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
Sarna is internationally recognized for her work in promoting nursing involvement in tobacco control and in oncology nursing research focused on quality of life and symptoms of patients with lung cancer. Her most recent study, an analysis of smoking trends of particpants among health care professionals, was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in January.
