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. She has worked with other
UI health care professionals to establish a family medicine clinic in St.
Petersburg, Russia and with Russian counterparts to develop a curriculum
for educating nurses there. This summer, she led a small group of UI nursing
students to St. Petersburg to learn about the practice of nursing in the
Russian health care system.

European, and Eurasian Studies as part of its fall lecture series. For
