Abstract:

Poster presented on: Saturday, November 16, 2013, Sunday, November 17, 2013

NFLA Leadership goals were to enlist others in a shared vision by establishing enthusiasm, trust, and honesty while leading several process-oriented committees in the college of nursing and developing and implementing a multidisciplinary community outreach program. Key strategies to achieve these goals included demonstrating enthusiasm (inspiring a shared vision and encouraging the heart), leading process-oriented activities within the college of nursing by serving as chair of three committees (model the way and challenge the process), mentoring faculty and students (model the way), developing an understanding of academic and non-profit partnerships, and providing safe and inclusive environments for interaction (enable others to act).

From experiences gained from the NFLA, I have assembled a collaborative team; building a coalition of key stakeholders to develop a program that increases access to health promotion and risk-reduction resources, Teen Take Heart (TTH) - a science-based cardiovascular educational program designed for at-risk high-school students. Teen Take Heart is the foundation for an effort to expand an interdisciplinary research program that has national implications related to health literacy. Teen Take Heart is organized in a framework that represents partnerships among an academic institution, a non-profit organization, and high schools in vulnerable communities. The framework facilitates the development of scholarship and research by engaging key stakeholders in the creation and implementation of the program. This leverages the strengths and resources of each partner; optimizing the intervention.

 My scope of influence expanded considerably as a scholar in the NFLA. Seeking opportunities to integrate myself at the systems level of the organization and working closely with leaders in nursing enhanced my personal development in the organization, community, and profession and was accomplished through establishing working relationships with visiting scholars, chairing committees, professional presentations, and attending college and university functions the promote the college of nursing and my project.
