Margaret Grey, a distinguished researcher from the Yale School of Nursing, will speak on “Enhancing Behavioral Care for Youth with Diabetes” during Syracuse University’s annual Judith Evers Memorial Lecture April 28 at 4 p.m. in the Kilian Room, Room 500 of the Hall of Languages. The lecture, which is sponsored by the School of Nursing in the College of Human Services and Health Professions, is free and open to the public. A question-and-answer session and reception will follow the presentation.
A pediatric nurse practitioner with expertise in diabetes, Grey’s research has focused on the natural history of adaptation to chronic illness in childhood and the study of behavioral interventions that improve both metabolic control of diabetes and the quality of life in young people. Her recent research project on the impact of a coping skills intervention for teens with diabetes won the Applied Nursing Research Award from the American Nurses Association Council on Nursing research.
She is the author of more than 100 journal articles, chapters and abstracts, and has received numerous regional and national honors for her research. She is currently the Independence Foundation Professor of Nursing and Associate Dean for Research Affairs at the Yale School of Nursing and has oversight of the research activities of the school. She also held progressive academic appointments at the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University.
Grey received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh, a master’s degree in pediatric nursing from Yale University and a doctorate in public health from Columbia University.
