CHARLESTON -- Lakeview College of Nursing will hold a research day for its faculty and students on Friday from 9 a.m. to noon at the Doudna Fine Arts Building located on the campus of Eastern Illinois University at 1860 7th St. The event will include a guest speaker as well as a Lakeview Honors Program.
According to a press release, Rita Wallace, who is one of the event's organizers and an assistant professor at Lakeview, said, "The focus of this semester's Research Day is to take excellent care of yourself as a nurse so you can give incredible care for your patients."
At 9 a.m., Tony and Liz Galbo will speak about the patients' side and their daughter's story which developed into Gabby's Law. Then at 9:45 a.m., Dr. Robin Grubbs will outline how each nurse needs to develop healthy sleep and self-care habits to be the best nurse possible.
Also, a group of senior-level students from each campus will be presenting service projects at approximately 11 a.m. during the Research Day event. Wallace explained that the students are assigned a group legacy project as a way for them to give back to the community and work together as a team.
There will also be a career fair with representatives from local hospitals and healthcare agencies and raffles throughout the day's activities, according to Wallace. The Honor's Ceremony will start around 11:30 a.m. to highlight senior students who have achieved honor's status.
Anyone interested in attending this event should contact Wallace at 217-709-0789.
