IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Elizabeth Swanson, Ph.D., will speak on "Nursing Education and Practice in Russia" Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 12:15 p.m. in Room 133 of the Nursing Building on the University of Iowa campus.

Swanson is associate dean of International Programs at the UI and an associate professor in the UI College of Nursing.
