Ann Cary, dean of the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Nursing and Health Studies, is a panelist at the 2017 National Health Research Forum.
Organized by Research!America, the forum will be held Sept. 7 in Washington, D.C. The forum sparks stimulating conversations among top leaders in government, industry, patient advocacy and academia about current issues that could impact the trajectory of medical and health research and innovation. Cary, PhD, MPH, RN, FNAP, FAAN, represents academic nursing on the panel.
