Patricia M. Davidson Professorship in Health Equity and Social Justice

SUSAN MATTHEWS EPSTEIN is a 1966 graduate of the Johns Hopkins Hospital Training School for Nurses. Epstein went on to earn a law degree, and continued her lifelong advocacy for access to health care for underserved children and adults. This endowed professorship embodies her belief that nursing science should develop knowledge that promotes health equity and social justice for all.

Established in 2018 as the Health Equity and Social Justice Endowed Professorship, the name changed in 2021 to honor Dean PATRICIA M. DAVIDSON, former dean and honorary alumna of Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, in accordance with the wishes of the donor.
