the Bureau of Health Professions. This is an important appointment as nursing will be key to the implementation of the new health care reform law.

Julie is (maybe I should say ‘was’ now) a member of this Center’s National Advisory Council. I’ve known her for a long time. She’s a brilliant thinker and was a stunning choice for this position. Julie has been an Associate Professor of Nursing, Faculty Associate in the Center for the Study of the History of Nursing, and Senior Fellow at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania.

She will work with Dr. Janet Heinrich, PhD, RN, FAAN, the Associate Administrator of the Bureau of Health Professions, and Dr. Mary Wakefield, PhD, RN, FAAN, Administrator of HRSA, to improve the nation’s health through better health care delivery systems and nursing services.

Exciting appointment!

Diana J. Mason, PhD, RN, FAAN, Rudin Professor of Nursing
