Diane Berry Graduates from UNC Faculty Engaged Scholars Program

 
Graduates of the Carolina Center for Public Service’s Faculty Engaged Scholars Program included SON Assistant Professor Diane Berry.
 
Diane Berry, an assistant professor at the UNC Chapel Hill School of Nursing, is part of the second class of Faculty Engaged Scholars. The Carolina Center for Public Service celebrated this second class of scholars at a graduation on Jan. 7, 2011, giving the scholars cords and certificates during the ceremony. The scholars represent various disciplines across the UNC Chapel Hill campus and worked during the two year program to strengthen their community partnerships and their connections to their research.

The Faculty Engaged Scholars are selected through a competitive process. The program has the goals of recognizing and rewarding faculty involved in engaged scholarship, creating and sustaining a community of engaged scholars from diverse perspectives, promoting interdisciplinary engaged scholarship, and continuing to build UNC Chapel Hill as an institution committed to and demonstrating strong university-community relationships. 

Berry used community-based participatory research to develop a weight management and diabetes prevention program for the Spanish-speaking population in Orange and Durham Counties. Over a three-year period, Berry refined, adapted, translated and tested a weight management intervention designed for Spanish-speaking women and their young children. Berry’s program gave voice to her work with the Hispanic community while also engaging community resources for a successful outcome.

“My life has been forever changed and enriched through the individuals I have met during this journey,” said Berry. “Collaboration within the Faculty Engaged Scholars Program provided a strong foundation to understand the importance of engaged scholarship and public service.”

      In my community there is no sarlay differential for the BSN. However, your options will be much more limited if you get the ADN. It pretty much means you will work at the bedside. Nothing wrong with that. But you may find out later on the you wish you had more choices.
