What Your Donations Support
While this development fund elevates and supports a variety of the Academy's initiatives, including strategic partnerships and expert panel discussions, each dollar raised directly supports the Academy's mission of improving health and achieving health equity by impacting policy through nursing leadership, innovation, and science.
Strategic partnerships have been enhanced with key groups across the broader health community. These partnerships include the National Academy of Medicine through our presence on the Best Practices and Innovation Collaborative, the Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education, and the Translating Genomic-Based Research for Health; the National Quality Forum; the National Coalition on Health Care; the Eldercare Workforce Alliance; and the United States Breastfeeding Committee.
Expert Panels represent the working groups of the Academy that consist of Fellows with expertise in areas of relevance to policy and practice. Expert Panel Fellows utilize their critical knowledge, analytical skills, and networks to review the current research and issues within their field. Taking action as appropriate in addressing key issues, Expert Panels ultimately make recommendations on projects or initiatives that the Academy should undertake to transform health policy and practice.
