Its good to see both of them. Congratulations to Shannon Zenk. And best wishes to Francis Collins.
“Out of an abundance of caution during the pandemic, her swearing-in ceremony was held virtually…”
I assume that by “caution,” Dr. Collins acted out of his awareness of the data and facts about Covid-19 transmission that justify a virtual ceremony rather than being questionably prudent or wary. One does not have to act out of an abundance of caution when the evidence is clear.
Congratulations, Shannon Zenk! Nursing is so very important!
Congratulations Dr. Zink. I am a strong supporter of nursing research. I love research and was on track to obtain my PhD and enter the realm of nursing research. Family issues did not allow me to reach my desired goal. Please carry on for all of us!
Congratulations! I hope to see the NINR embrace a more expansive definition of nursing research under your tenure. Best wishes.
Appointed the 16th Director of NIH by President Barack Obama and confirmed by the Senate. He was sworn in on August 17, 2009. On June 6, 2017. President Donald Trump announced his selection of Dr. Collins to continue to serve as the NIH Director.
