Maureen George selected for induction into Sigma Nursing Hall of Fame

On March 26, 2024, Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing (Sigma) selected Maureen George, PhD, a professor at Columbia University School of Nursing, to be inducted into the 2024 International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame. According to Sigma, these honorees “embody the collective impact of nursing research on global healthcare.” Currently, 300 nurse researchers are part of the Hall of Fame, which celebrates its 16th anniversary this year. An induction will be held at Sigma’s 35th International Nursing Research Congress in Singapore on Saturday, July 27, 2024. George will become the eleventh inductee from Columbia Nursing. 

“This a great honor and I am pleased to join a community that is passionate about nursing science that advances health and reduces inequities,” says George.  

George has a research program that uses shared decision-making and motivational interviewing to improve disease outcomes in vulnerable populations with chronic respiratory disease. She is also currently serving as a U.S. Fulbright Scholar in Trinidad and Tobago where she is adapting her intervention to a well population. 

“We are thrilled to see George’s important contributions recognized with this most prestigious honor,” says Lorraine Frazier, PhD, dean of Columbia Nursing.
