The Littlefield Leadership Lecture Series
The 20th Littlefield Leadership Lecture, “Health Equity Among Native Americans Within a Colonization Context,” was presented October 8, 2019, by Dr. John Lowe, PhD, RN, FAAN, executive director, Center for Indigenous Nursing Research for Health Equity (INRHE) and McKenzie Professor in Health Disparities Research, Florida State University.
Annual Littlefield lectures highlight nurse leaders and reflect the complexity of healthcare, changing and aging populations, scientific discoveries, innovations, and more. The lectures are valued by researchers, educators, practitioners, students, and members of the healthcare community and beyond.
Inspired and supported by the Friends of Littlefield, the Littlefield Leadership Lecture is named after Dean Emerita Vivian Littlefield, who led the UW–Madison School of Nursing from 1984 through 1999.
