Genevieve E. Chandler, associate professor of nursing, has been chosen to receive American Psychiatric Nurses Association’s Award for Excellence in Research, which recognizes significant contributions to research in psychiatric nursing care, education, leadership and management and health services.
Chandler’s research focuses on how to interrupt the effect adverse childhood experiences have on health risk behaviors, hard-to-treat symptoms and chronic disease conditions.
The award will be presented during the APNA’s annual conference, scheduled for Oct. 9-12 in San Antonio.
Chandler joined the faculty in 1987 and is a past recipient of the College of Nursing’s Teaching Award and the campus’s Distinguished Outreach Award. She was honored by the APNA in 2008 for excellence in education.
She holds a Ph.D. from the University of Utah College of Nursing.
