May 6 — Family Caregiving Institute faculty selected for future leaders symposium
Julie Bidwell, a new assistant professor in the Family Caregiving Institute at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis, was invited to participate in the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) second Future Leaders in Heart Failure Symposium in Charlotte, North Carolina, May 4-6. HFSA leadership is committed to supporting select cardiology fellows, nurses (particularly advanced practice nurses or nurse scientists) and pharmacists early in their respective careers. Symposium attendees are HFSA members who applied for selection and met scholarly and research requirements. The event included networking opportunities with thought leaders in heart failure, state-of-the-art updates, as well as education and discussion of current and future challenges in the care of heart failure patients. Julie, who joined the school May 1, teaches, conducts research and mentors students in family caregiving, and patient and family engagement in heart failure management.
