Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy recently recognized us as its 22nd certified care center for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Patient Xander Little and his dad, Coulter, joined our team for the ceremony.
So thankful for UVA School of Nursing's own professor Vickie Southall who was celebrated by Louisa County Public Schools earlier this month as a "Community MVP."
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. Her nursing students teach nutrition, CPR and first aid to middle and high schoolers, assist in emergency response drills, and work across a variety of sites to understand the ins and outs of community health work.

HPV Discovery Opens Door to New Cancer Treatments
We know a good bit about how HPV (human papillomavirus) causes cancer, down to a particular protein it makes to stop healthy cells’ natural ability to prevent tumors. Scientists have tried for years to find a way to block that protein, but with little luck. A new discovery from our Anindya Dutta, PhD, gives them a promising new target for developing treatments for the HPV cancers. Click the photo to read more.
