George Washington University (GWU) School of Nursing recently released a doctoral program in which the school’s assistant professor in health disparities and oncology, Dr. Daisy Le, will figure prominently. Although not a nurse, Le’s in-depth research in health equity and healthcare disparities as well as her extensive community-based work make her of crucial importance to dean Dr. Pamela Jeffries’ transdisciplinary research vision.
“Daisy’s work can expand not only across the School of Nursing, but also the School of Public Health, School of Medicine and the health sciences,” says Jeffries. “In this day and age, we need to be collaborative as we look for increasing and contributing to the science of our profession as well as all health professions.”
