CHP Professors Inducted Into NAP

CHP Professors Jane Bear-Lehman, Renee McLeod-Sordjan, and Jason Slyer were recently inducted into NAP as Distinguished Practitioners and Fellows.  NAP, the National Academies of Practice, is an interdisciplinary, nonprofit organization, with membership representing 14 health care professions willing to serve as distinguished advisors to health care policy makers in Congress and elsewhere. Membership in the NAP is an honor extended to those who have excelled in their profession and are dedicated to furthering practice, scholarship and policy in support of interprofessional care.

The 14 academies of practice within the NAP include: Audiology, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Optometry, Osteopathic Medicine, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Podiatric Medicine, Psychology, Social Work, Speech-Language Pathology and Veterinary Medicine. The central purpose of NAP is to advise public policy makers on health care issues using NAP's unique perspective -- that of expert practitioners and scholars joined in interdisciplinary dialogue.

New members were recently inducted following a forum on “Interprofessional Practice and Education: Embracing Transformational Change” at a gala membership banquet in Baltimore, MD.
