Dear all,

It’s my pleasure to announce that Professor Linda Sarna from UCLA, is going to visit our School from 26 June 2018 to 30 June 2018. You are cordially invited to attend one public lecture and one research seminar to be delivered by Professor Sarna. 

Dr. Linda Sarna, Dean of the UCLA School of Nursing, is an oncology nurse with expertise in lung cancer and is a leader in nursing research and tobacco control. She was declared an “Edge Runner”, along with Dr. Stella A. Bialous, by the American Academy of Nursing for the Tobacco Free Nurses initiative, which aimed to expand nursing education, leadership and research in tobacco control. This was the first program in the United States to help nurses with smoking cessation and was recognized as an exemplar by WHO.  Dr. Sarna has partnered with nursing organizations around the world to develop policies and programs in this area. She has published extensively about the leadership role of nurses in tobacco control education and policy, including papers about web-based educational interventions for nurses in Asia and Central/Eastern Europe. She led the effort to implement the tobacco-free policy at University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Sarna received the Lifetime Achievement award from the Oncology Nursing Society in 2018. https://www.nursing.ucla.edu/about-us/faculty-directory/linda-sarna
