Congress 2022 Exhibitor

Kent Brouwer

“Attending the Sigma Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland was definitely one of the highlights of my nursing research career thus far. The opportunity gave me insight into other research that nurses are doing across the globe, and I continue to reflect fondly on the numerous conversations with other nursing faculty on ways they implemented projects that promoted well-being. I quickly realized how these conferences create and promote collaboration throughout higher education, and it was clear that learning from the work that others have completed is one of the best ways to enhance and further develop nursing research.”

— Kent Brouwer, UK College of Nursing Instructor, grant recipient, and congress presenter
