Loretta Sweet Jemmott, Ph.D., RN, FAAN, will talk about the characteristics and skill sets that define a leader. Her talk will also focus on you—what journey you took to becoming you, and how your experience and skills can help you become an effective nursing leader.

One of the country’s foremost researchers in the field of HIV/AIDS, STD, and pregnancy prevention, Loretta Sweet Jemmott is an expert in health promotion research and a nationally recognized leader in understanding and reducing risk-related behaviors. Jemmott has conducted NIH-funded intervention studies in Philadelphia barbershops, housing developments, schools, and churches. She has also partnered with community organizations to transform her research outcomes for use in real-world settings. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Department of Health and Human Services Office of Adolescent Health have promoted and disseminated eight of her evidence-based interventions, which are now used in 50 US states and eight countries.
