From a “Gem of an Idea” to Reality

Reducing healthcare disparities among minority communities by contributing to the global scholarly discourse.

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Kathleen Parker

Ph.D., APRN, FNP-BC

The Association of Black Nursing Faculty, Inc. (ABNF) welcomes you back from a summer; hopefully, of rest, restoration, and relaxation! The mission of ABNF to promote and widely disseminate the research and other scholarly works of the minority nurse academician that remain relevant. We had an awesome 35th Annual Meeting and Scientific Conference at the beautiful Nassau Bahama’s Atlantis Paradise Resort on June 9-12, 2022. As we gained the most recent evidence and research on “Advancing Health Equity in Ethnically Diverse Populations through Practice, Research, Education, and Policy (PREP)”, we were able to make new connections; strengthen the current ones; and reconnect with others.
