Congratulations to Mary Nies, Special Assistant to the Dean for Grant Writing and Professor in the College of Health, who recently received the Distinguished Research Lectureship award from the Western Institute of Nursing (WIN). The award recognizes a senior investigator whose research career has made substantial and sustained contributions to nursing.
The award recognizes one individual per year who has achieved tremendous success in the following:

According to the WIN website, this award was instituted at the 1988 annual Communicating Nursing Research Conference sponsored by the Western Society for Research in Nursing (WSRN was merged with the Western Institute of Nursing in 1996).
Nies was recognized as the Distinguished Research Lecturer at the annual WIN Conference and at the Distinguished Research Lectureship plenary session in April. There, she presented to colleagues and peers on the topic of Research: Past, Present, and Future.
