We are delighted that our founding member and trustee, Professor Dame Sarah Cowley, has been listed in the Nursing Standard/RCNi Celebration of 70 influential nurses and midwives from 1948 to 2018 – a list of nurses and midwives to celebrate 70 years of the NHS.
Sarah has had a distinguished career in health visiting and research culminating in being one of the four founders of the Institute. In the 2013 New Year’s Honours List, Sarah was awarded Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in acknowledgement of her services to health visiting.
Dr Cheryll Adams CBE, Executive Director iHV, said:
“I am so delighted that Sarah has been chosen for this great honour which is thoroughly deserved. She had positively influenced the lives of many families and the careers of many health visitor researchers over her career.”
Professor Dame Sarah Cowley commented:
“I am honoured to be included amongst such luminaries.”
