WHAT WE LEARNED.
While we have more work to do in this domain, we are proud to be the ONLY nursing school so far to participate in Shaun R. Harper's Race & Equity Institute.

Southall, a beloved University of Virginia #communityhealth #nursing professor who's deeply embedded in her Louisa hometown, is a shining example of a servant leader nurturing nursing's next generation.

Thanks, INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, for the honor!
Midcentury to Modern, UVA's Men in Nursing
