Those nurses will then serve as mentors to a group of aspiring nurse leaders. Project objectives include placing many nurses in board leadership roles. The success of this project will be communicated through published profiles and interviews, as well as infographics. A companion piece to this project is identifying a list of Florida boards that engage in health policy develop. • Leadership • Diversity • Infrastructure Contact: Mary Lou Brunell Project Director University of Florida [email protected] Ann-Lynn Denker Project Co-Director Florida Action Coalition [email protected] The project will also concentrate on strengthening the sustainability and infrastructure of the Florida Action Coalition, expanding the number of relationships with policymakers and coalitions.
