Johns Hopkins nursing school names dean

May 27, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Martha N. Hill, a national leader in research on racial disparities in health, has been appointed dean of the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing.

Hill, who has served as interim dean for the past year, was the first nonphysician to serve as president of the American Heart Association.

A Hopkins faculty member for 22 years, Hill is known for developing strategies to control high blood pressure among urban and medically underserved African-Americans. She also played a key role in the formation of the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute.

Hill said she expects the nursing school to become more involved with underserved communities, including East Baltimore.
