The annual Kathleen Hickey Endowed Lectureship in Science of Cardiovascular Care, hosted by the Center for Research on People of Color at Columbia University School of Nursing, memorializes Kathleen Hickey, EdD, a Columbia Nursing professor who conducted innovative, interdisciplinary research to improve cardiovascular health.
This second annual lectureship will feature Dr. Ruth Masterson Creber, PhD, MSc, RN, FAHA, FAAN, a Professor at Columbia University School of Nursing. The title of her talk is “Getting to the Heart of Mentorship: Lessons learned from an exemplar Nurse Scientist, Clinician, Mentor, and Friend”.
This event will be held in-person. Refresments and appetizers will be served.
Dr. Hickey's research and clinical practice was focused on cardiogenetics, clinical care and management of atrial and ventricular arrythmias, and prevention of sudden cardiac death. Hickey was also co-director of the Precision in Symptom Self-Management Center and held a joint appointment in the Division of Cardiology (electrophysiology) as both a family and adult nurse practitioner. The lectures will be held every February and will be free and open to the public.
