July 16 — Alumna launches first nursing grand rounds with student presentation Three master’s-degree leadership students from the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing were invited to present their Community Connections research project at the first-ever Nursing Grand Rounds at Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento. Community Connections, a required course for all first-year leadership students, pairs teams of students with a community organization to study and address a system problem. Rowena Chimbee Joven, Andrea Shaw and Kaprice Sistrunk completed a project where they developed a photo and story book for Joshua’s House, a planned hospice for terminally ill homeless in Sacramento. The book highlights the experiences of many homeless in the region and their sometimes-dehumanizing experiences trying to access health care in the region. Stacy Alves, a Class of 2014 alumna of the leadership program, is a nurse manager at the Kaiser facility who led the development of the nursing grand rounds there and invited fellow nurse and student Kaprice to present her group’s project.
