Dr. Daniel B. Oerther, professor of environmental health engineering, received the 2019 NLN Lillian Wald Humanitarian Award from the National League for Nursing at the league’s annual education summit in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 28.
Oerther was recognized, in part, for his leadership of GRoWES – a program of Global Research in WaSH (water, sanitation and hygiene) to Eliminate childhood Stunting. Founded in Guatemala and replicated in Brazil, Ghana, India, Kenya, South Africa, and Tanzania, GRoWES is a nursing-inspired program of care and interventions that affect costs, improve health care quality, and enhance consumer satisfaction among mothers and their children in communities where stunting is prevalent.
