Jean Ross' Inaugural Professorial Lecture
Dr Jean Ross works at the intersection of clinical practice, research and education in the context of communities. Communities may be place-based but also include groups with common interests which are not limited geographically.
We warmly invite you to join us at our upcoming inaugural professorial event:
Professor Jean Ross - Collaborating with Communities: Communities Collaborating a Global-Local Impact
Dr Jean Ross works at the intersection of clinical practice, research and education in the context of communities. Communities may be place-based but also include groups with common interests which are not limited geographically. In this lecture Jean will discuss the impact of her communities on her research and practice, and her own impact on a wide range of communities in New Zealand and internationally.
Forming connections between communities is a key focus, whether that is between rural nurses and rural GPs, between nursing educators in many countries, and between learners and rural communities, to enable mutually beneficial development. Jean will challenge current inequities in health, particularly as experienced in rural communities, and present creative solutions that empower communities.
Professor Jean Ross has been working at Otago Polytechnic since 2003. She is a Registered Nurse, holds a BN and a Master of Arts, and completed her Doctorate in 2017. From 1994 to 2003, Jean was co-director of the National Centre for Rural Health and instrumental in the development of interdisciplinary postgraduate nursing education. In 2008, she received the Rural General Practice Network Peter Snow Memorial Award in recognition of her national contribution to rural health care. Jean continues to make a significant contribution to rural health care and sustainable community development.
