Ju Young Shin, Ph.D., APRN, ANP-C, an associate professor in the School of Nursing, has received the Parkinson’s Foundation Nurse Faculty Award. She was among three nurses nationwide selected to receive the honor, which comes with a $10,000 grant from the foundation to launch a project to help make life better for people with Parkinson’s disease. Shin also is a graduate of the Foundation’s Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program, a 40-hour accredited program that teaches faculty leaders how to educate nursing students with ways to improve PD nursing care. As part of that program, she developed a six-week patient-centered, nurse-led home visit and telehealth intervention aimed at improving medication management and adherence among individuals with early and moderate stage PD.
