UR School of Nursing Graduate Named to Institute of Medicine

November 07, 2000

A graduate of the doctoral program at the University of Rochester School of Nursing has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences' prestigious Institute of Medicine.

Jacquelyn C. Campbell, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N., earned her doctorate degree from the University of Rochester in 1986. She also was the recipient of the University's Distinguished Alumni Medal in 1997.

Campbell is currently the Anna D. Wolf Endowed Professor and associate dean for doctoral education and research at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing in Baltimore. Her clinical practice interests focus on domestic violence. Her research concentrates on women's physical, emotional and behavioral responses to battering in intimate relationships, including marital rape, resultant homicide, abuse during pregnancy, and violence in adolescent relationships.

Only 60 people were elected this year, based on their major contributions to health and medicine, or to fields such as social and behavioral sciences, law, administration and economics. Elizabeth McAnarney, M.D., pediatrician-in-chief of Children's Hospital at Strong and chair of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical Center, also was elected.

Current Institute of Medicine projects include studies on the creation of a medical system to support long-duration space travel beyond Earth's orbit, the development of new technologies for the early detection of breast cancer, and the safety and efficacy of the anthrax vaccine used by the United Stated military.
