Nov. 14 — Nursing professor featured in KVIE ‘Curiosity Project’ series Elena Siegel, an associate professor at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis, is one of six UC Davis faculty featured in a six-part series exploring the curious spirit that leads scientists and researchers to make discoveries in science, technology, health and more. Elena’s segment provides viewers a glimpse of her story and how her career path took a number of unexpected turns. She was a CPA focused on business and finance. However, watching her mother-in-law’s final days in a nursing home inspired her to embrace a new field of research. Now, Elena works to improve the nursing home industry by finding ways for managers to better support employees and thereby improve care for seniors.
