SWHR Featured in New Nursing Textbook

Chapter covers SWHR’s work in advocacy, education, and research for women’s health

Washington, DC (May 18, 2011) – Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) Board member and leader in women’s and infants’ health and research, Irma Goertzen, RN, MA wrote an exciting chapter on SWHR in the newly published textbook, Policy & Politics in Nursing and Health Care, 6th Edition.

The new textbook features current analysis of healthcare policy and how nurses can directly influence change in today’s health care environment. Policy & Politics covers the 2010 healthcare reform law, community involvement and activism, and chapters detailing innovative work in today’s health non-profits.

“We are very pleased with the inclusion of SWHR’s history and impact on health research in the new textbook Policy & Politics,” said Phyllis Greenberger, MSW, President and CEO of SWHR. “Former SWHR Board Chair Irma Goertzen and Suzanne Stone did a wonderful job including all relevant SWHR achievements in this enlightening book for today’s nursing students. Hopefully this book chapter will inspire students to consider sex differences in their chosen career fields.”

Policy & Politics is published through Elseiver Sanders and edited by Diana J. Mason, Judith K. Leavitt, and Mary W. Chaffee. Purchase your copy today from any online retailer or from your local book store.
