Steven J. Palazzo, PhD, MN, RN, assistant professor at Seattle University College of Nursing, is one of just 12 nurse educators from across the United States to receive a highly competitive Nurse Faculty Scholar Award from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) this year. Dr. Palazzo will receive a three-year, $350,000 grant to support his research and promote the development of his academic career. The RWJF Nurse Faculty Scholar award is given to junior faculty who show outstanding promise as future leaders in academic nursing.
“This award from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will fund an innovative research program aimed at reducing one of the country’s greatest health care challenges—cardiovascular disease,” said Palazzo.
Dr. Palazzo’s Teen Take Heart program was developed in partnership with the Hope Heart Institute and promotes science education and health behavior change for teenagers in underserved communities. For his research project, Palazzo will use a series of interactive in-class instructional and hands-on, kit-based modules to improve knowledge and increase awareness of how behaviors and attitudes affect cardiovascular health. Teen Take Heart has been designed to incorporate anatomy, physiology, disease pathology, nutrition, exercise, and research into engaging and interactive learning sessions to promote heart-healthy lifestyle choices. “One of the research goals is to expand our understanding of how to initiate and sustain behavior change in economically and ethnically diverse populations,” Palazzo added.
Dr. Kathy Camacho-Carr (College of Nursing) and Dr. Jeffrey Anderson (College of Education) will be working closely with Dr. Palazzo to advance his leadership and research skills. Dr. Palazzo will be receiving national mentorship from Dr. Martha Hill, Dean of the School of Nursing at Johns Hopkins University and past president of the American Heart Association.
Dr. Palazzo joined Seattle University College of Nursing in 2011. His other noteworthy achievements include recognition as the Sauvage Fellow with the Hope Heart Institute, and Nurse Faculty Leadership Academy Fellow for Sigma Theta Tau International.
Please join the College of Nursing in congratulating Dr. Steven Palazzo for his outstanding achievement!
