Dr. Lenette M. Jones of the University of Michigan School of Nursing and a current junior investigator mentee of our Center was recently honored with the 2020 Harriet H. Werley New Investigator
Award by the Midwest Nursing Research Society (MNRS). The award was established to recognize the contribution of a new investigator who has conducted nursing research that has the potential to enhance the science and practice of nursing. Dr. Jones’ research focuses on the mechanisms – biological, psychological, social, and physical – of self-management interventions surrounding hypertension in older African American women.
