She previously was on the faculty of The Pennsylvania State University’s School of Nursing, where she was interim director of the school and professor-in-charge of the graduate program. She earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Ottawa, a master’s degree from the University of Central Arkansas and a Ph.D. from the University of Alabama-Birmingham.
The Judith Anne Evers Lecture memorializes the professional life of Evers, a former member of the College of Nursing faculty who earned both bachelor’s and master’s degrees at SU. Throughout her career, Evers set the highest standards for her own performance and that of the programs and projects she led in the SU community. The lecture series is made possible through the generous support of David Evers, the Evers family, Dorothy McCaffre and other individuals.
