The UI College of Nursing has received a $191,500 alumni donation that will allow the school to launch global health initiatives in Haiti and Swaziland, and provide international study and travel opportunities for nursing students.

The donation, made by Susan Code (BSN ’79) and Andy Code (BBA Finance ’80, MBA ’81), will be used to establish a health care clinic in Haiti that will provide primary care and health promotion, training, and education to local families. It will also provide scholarship funding that will allow nursing students to travel to Swaziland, a monarchy in southern Africa, as part of a community and population health learning experience.
