Nursing Faculty Member Receives Coverson Grant
Kenya Kirkendoll, clinical assistant professor of nursing, is named the first recipient of the Dr. Dorothy Coverson grant given by the Chi Eta Phi nursing sorority. A Ph.D. student at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, Kirkendoll previously worked with Dr. Coverson and is honored to be the first to receive the grant.
Presented to recipients who advance nursing via research, the Coverson grant will help fund Kirkendoll’s dissertation work. She studies the use of continuous positive airway pressure in truckers who have sleep apnea.
