Agnes Dillon Randolph Award and Lecture Honors Margarete Sandelowski

February 6, 2002-- The University of Virginia School of Nursing Center for Nursing Historical Inquiry’s ninth annual Agnes Dillon Randolph Lecture, co-sponsored by Sigma Theta Tau Beta Kappa, will take place on Thursday, March 21, 2002 from 4:30 to 6:00 PM in McLeod Hall Auditorium. The Randolph Award recipient -- Margarete Sandelowski, PhD, RN, FAAN — will present the lecture entitled, "Paradox and Irony in the Nursing/Technology Relationship." Sandelowski, an eminent nurse historian, traces the complex relationship between nursing and technology from the 1870s to the present. She describes how nurses both embraced and rejected technology, and offers insight into how these disparate views affect today’s nurses.

Sandelowski is currently a professor of nursing and Chair of the Department of Women’s and Children’s Health at the University of North Carolina School of Nursing, Chapel Hill.

The Randolph award and lecture is sponsored by the UVa Center for Nursing Historical Inquiry. The center is dedicated to the preservation and study of nursing history in the United States. The award and lecture honor Agnes Dillon Randolph, the great granddaughter of Thomas Jefferson, who was a prominent leader in Virginia nursing. She helped create the Virginia Nurses Association in 1901 and the first graduate nursing program in the south at the University of Virginia.

Part of the 2002 Virginia Festival of the Book, the lecture is free and open to the public. A reception and book signing will follow. For more information, call (434) 924-0083.
