FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

UNM, Albuquerque-The American Heart Association (AHA) has named Debra Brady, Ph.D., RN, along with the University of New Mexico College of Nursing (UNM CON), the Community Health Outreach Partner of the Year for her work in cultural outreach programs.

The purpose of the AHA cultural outreach programs is to expose student nurses to culturally diverse health experiences and to help support community heart health programs. Dr. Brady has supported this cause by including the AHA cultural outreach programs in the CON curriculum as a clinical experience for nursing students.

In 2005, over 100 CON students were given the opportunity to work on semester projects that conducted heart health outreach at various AHA program sites. These projects allowed students to work with diverse populations and gain valuable clinical experiences.

Dr. Brady is an assistant professor at the CON. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master of Nursing Education from the University of Pittsburgh and a doctorate in Educational Administration from the University of New Mexico.
