            PHILADELPHIA –- Three University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing professors will receive one of the highest honors in nursing when they’re inducted as fellows in the American Academy of Nursing.  The ceremony will be held at the Academy’s annual meeting in October in Washington.

• Anne Teitelman has been teaching advanced practice nurses for more than 15 years and is known for her expertise in primary health care with underserved populations.  Her research focuses on HIV prevention among adolescents and in understanding intimate partner violence as an HIV risk factor.

• Chris Bradway has practiced as a gerontologic nurse practitioner for more than 20 years in long-term care, community-based primary and specialty care and as a nurse clinician in a tertiary setting.  Her research interests include delirium in hospitalized older adults and emergency care of the elderly.

• Jianghong Liu’s research focuses on how early health risk factors, including prenatal/postnatal risk factors, influence emotional and behavioral development in children and adolescents. She is the principal investigator on the China Jintan Child Health Project, which investigates the influence of lead exposure and micro-nutrient deficiency on children’s behavior.

            The Academy's 1,500 Fellows are expected to enhance the quality of health and nursing care, promote healthy aging and human development, reduce health disparities, shape healthy behaviors and environments and strengthen the nursing and health-care delivery system.
