American Academy of Nursing elects two on JHU faculty

Linda C. Pugh and Phyllis Sharps, both associate professors in the School of Nursing, have been elected fellows in the American Academy of Nursing.

Director of the baccalaureate program, Pugh teaches and conducts research on issues related to childbearing and breast-feeding support for women.

Sharps, director of the master's program, teaches and conducts research on intimate partner violence and its effect on women's physical and mental health, pregnancy outcomes and infant mortality.

The American Academy of Nursing is an organization of nursing leaders who have been recognized by their peers for their outstanding contributions to the profession and to health care. Pugh and Sharps will be formally inducted into the academy during its annual meeting and conference in November, bringing to 15 the total number of JHU School of Nursing faculty members who are fellows in the academy.


Hopkins 4K for Cancer riders complete cross-country trek

Twenty Hopkins students and five friends coasted their racing bikes into San Francisco around 1 p.m. on July 29, completing a 3,500-mile cross-country journey that raised between $40,000 and $50,000 for the American Cancer Society.

The students left the Homewood campus June 1 on their Hopkins 4K for Cancer ride, stopping at the Inner Harbor to dunk their back tires. Upon their arrival in San Francisco, the students christened their front tires in the water near the Golden Gate Bridge before a cheering crowd of family and friends.

This was the second group of Johns Hopkins students to cross the country on two wheels. The 2002 inaugural ride raised $41,000.


Celtic flutist Chris Norman to give concert in Wyman Park

Celtic flute player Chris Norman and his ensemble will appear at Wyman Park at 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 8. The concert is sponsored by the Jones Falls Watershed Association, a program of Greater Homewood Community Corp., and will benefit the Stoney Run, a portion of which flows behind the Homewood campus.

In addition to headlining the Chris Norman Ensemble, Norman plays with the Baltimore Consort and appears annually with Helicon at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Known for his high-spirited shows, Norman won much acclaim for his flute work on the Titanic soundtrack. In 1999, Norman composed a piece titled Stoney Run that appears on the CD Way Out to Hope Street by the Celtic supergroup Skyedance, which featured the Nova Scotia native on flute.

The concert will be held at the Wyman Park sports field, located just below the 3700 block of Tudor Arms Avenue. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring blankets or garden chairs; a $10 contribution is recommended.
