Dr. Joyce Rasin, a noted nursing scholar and teacher, will deliver the 17th Annual Helen Miller Lecture at North Carolina Central University on Thursday, March 7.
The lecture, the signature event for the NCCU Department of Nursing, honors Helen Miller, the department chair from 1957 to 1977 and the imprint she made on the profession of nursing. It also raises money for scholarships for nursing students at the university.
Rasin’s topic is “Minority Aging,” one of her areas of expertise. She has been a project director and co-investigator on two clinical trials funded by the National Institutes of Health focusing on the care of people with secondary symptoms of dementia. Rasin is a professor at Widener School of Nursing in Chester, Pa., and has previously taught at UNC–Chapel Hill, Oregon Health Sciences University, Delaware State University and the University of Maryland Baltimore City. She holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing from the University of Pennsylvania and a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland.
The lecture event will begin at 9 a.m. on March 7 at NCCU’s Nursing Building and conclude with a luncheon from noon to 1:30 p.m. Advance registration is required. For those who register and pay by Feb. 18, the cost is $50 for nonstudents and $15 for students. For those who register from Feb. 18 to 23, there is a late fee of $10. No registrations will be accepted after Feb. 23.
