New Partnership with NTUNHS

Basia Belza PhD, RN, FAAN, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the National Taipei University of Nursing and Health Sciences (NTUNHS). Dr. Belza is the Director to the deTornyay Center for Healthy Aging and has worked with UW Grad and now Professor at NTUNHS, Dr. Tiffany Wang, as she was a PhD student at the UW. The signing ceremony took place on March 21, 2019, as Dr. Belza visited Taipei to give a Plenary Presentation on March 22 at the International Conference on Precision Healthcare. Dr. Belza had this to say about the new partnership:

“Nursing science is experiencing robust growth. As such, Schools of Nursing are continuing to look for global collaborations.  This memorandum of understanding has the potential to be a win-win for both the UW SoN and the NTUNHS, Taipei, Taiwan.  Through strengthening and formalizing our international connections we have the opportunity to expand our study abroad programs, share our teaching initiatives across the ocean, and conduct collaborative research on shared issues with participants from various cultures.  The energy and enthusiasm is high at NTUNHS especially with but not limited to our alums from our PhD in Nursing Science program.”
