Dr. Nolan is a health disparities-focused nurse scientist developing interventions that promote self-management in the prevention and control of chronic conditions (i.e. breast cancer and cardiovascular disease). Her dissertation study of young African American (AA) breast cancer survivorship, funded by an American Cancer Society Doctoral Degree in Cancer Nursing Scholarship, provided formative data toward the systematic adaptation of a psychoeducational, quality-of-life intervention. Dr. Nolan’s postdoctoral fellowship afforded her opportunities to examine effects of a cancer prevention intervention for multi-ethnic women while using intramural funds to advance her quality-of-life intervention, as well as exploring connections between cancer and cardiovascular disease in AA women. By identifying/understanding contextual factors of self-management in health and well-being, Dr. Nolan hopes to be better able to develop, implement and disseminate culturally-sensitive interventions for African Americans that will eventually reduce health disparities.

Lurking right behind the COVID-19 pandemic is another major killer: the seemingly unstoppable incidences of violence by Americans on one another. Most recently, we witnessed senseless shootings in areas including Atlanta, Austin, Boulder, Chicago, Columbus, Indianapolis, Kenosha, WI and Orange County, CA. Major cities are experiencing a steep rise in gun violence. My hometown of Philadelphia reels daily from violence. Innocent children are frequent victims.

The events themselves are horrific, but only part of the story.

OHIO-Nurses are up against major obstacles every day: workplace violence; burnout; unsafe staffing; COVID-19; and other traumatic events. Many of these have a lasting impact that go beyond the bedside, leading to moral injury within the profession. Moral injury, often described as a consequence of continual acts that go against one’s morality, is a phenomenon sweeping the profession, which is why the Ohio Nurses Foundation announced today the winners of a $100,000 award to support important research on moral injury in nursing.
