Dr. Daniel Oerther, professor of environmental health engineering, has been re-appointed to the seven-member board of the Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) Honor Society of Nursing Building Corp.
Oerther was reappointed by Beth Tigges, the president of Sigma, based in part on his track record promoting sustainable facilities. For example, Oerther consulted on the design and construction of an award-winning hospital and an elementary school in rural Tanzania. He also consulted on the construction and equipping of a health clinic, an elementary school and a dozen maternity wards in rural Ghana. Additionally, Oerther consulted on the design of the Cincinnati Green Learning Station, which included the retrofit of a former gas station to include a green roof demonstration project.
The 135,000 global members of Sigma are served by three organizations including: the honor society, the foundation, and the building corporation. Established in 1993, the building corporation manages real estate for the organization.
