East Texas Summit in Tyler hosted more than 200 students!

IMG_6495In late April the East Texas Regional TEXAS TEAM held a Summit in Tyler, Texas. During the summit, over 200 students and nurse leaders heard more information about coalition efforts across Texas and participate in ongoing efforts in East Texas to lead change and advance health for Texans. The Academic Progression in Nursing Team (funded by Robert Wood Johnson) also spoke about academic progression, diversity, and mentor-ship in nursing. An afternoon mentor session was held with the attending students. 12 new mentors stepped up to the plate and several mentees signed up to be mentored!
