Jo Dowell, College of Nursing
Jo Dowell, Ph.D., assistant professor and research faculty in the College of Nursing, presented her research findings at the 27th Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Research Congress in Cape Town, South Africa.
Dowell’s research “Conceptualizing cultural weaving to decrease health disparities: What are the culture characteristics of a community organization?” studied caregivers of asthmatic children, their understanding of culture, and how a lack of training in cultural differences may impair the quality of care provided to these children.
The Kent State University Board of Trustees today established a comprehensive, national search to recruit and select the university’s 13th president.
The events of May 4, 1970, placed Kent State University in an international spotlight after a student protest against the Vietnam War and the presence of the Ohio National Guard ended in tragedy with four students losing their lives and nine others being wounded. From a perspective of nearly 50 years, Kent State remembers the tragedy and leads a contemporary discussion and understanding of how the community, nation and world can benefit from understanding the profound impact of the event.
