DELTA THETA CHAPTER MEMBERS TRAVEL TO CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA FOR 27TH INTERNATIONAL NURSING RESEARCH CONGRESS
Delta Theta Chapter members Dr. Ellen L. Palmer, Dr. Jacqueline Michael, and Becky Baird (left to right in the picture) presented a poster on July 23 and 24, 2016 at the Sigma Theta Tau 27th International Nursing Research Congress held in Cape Town, South Africa. Titled “Delta Theta Builds a Consortium to Engage Other Chapters in Global Health Activities”, the authors described Delta Theta’s efforts in creating a consortium of the six North Texas Sigma Theta Tau chapters that have collaborated in three major international educational activities. The Delta Theta poster was well received as 780 attendees from over 35 countries were able to talk with the authors while viewing 118 posters during the last two days of formal poster viewing sessions. The fourth author on the poster, Dr. Jennifer Gray, now of Oklahoma Christian University and Delta Theta member, was unable to attend as she had been in Uganda, Africa, several weeks prior to the 27th International Research Congress.
