Wegmans School of Nursing Dean and Professor Share Expertise in London
Following a recent trip to a conference in Dublin, Dr. Dianne Cooney Miner, dean of the Wegmans School of Nursing (WSoN), and Dr. Mary Collins, associate professor, WSoN, were invited to London, England to meet with the AMAR (Assisting Marsh Arabs and Refugees) International Charitable Foundation. The organization's mission is to rebuild health care capacity in Iraq, and they are looking to reopen nursing schools that were closed under Saddam Hussein's dictatorship.
They met with Baroness Emma Nicholson, founder and executive chairman of AMAR, who has worked in a variety of charitable roles in the Middle East. In addition, she is a member of the Parliament, House of Lords, in England, and an advisor to the Prime Minister of Iraq in the health field.
Dr. Cooney Miner's strong relationship with the new vice president of AMAR in the U.S., Chris Straub, is what led Baroness Nicholson to Fisher. She and Dr. Collins shared their expertise about rebuilding nursing capacity with the Foundation at the House of Lords.
