Hudson Santos

University of Miami Vice Dean for Research Affairs Hudson Santos, PhD, RN, FABMR, FAAN, will discuss child health at the 2024 Jane and Robert Cizik Lecture on Wednesday, April 24.

The event will take place in the Cizik School of Nursing at UTHealth Houston auditorium at 10:30 a.m. with the theme “Developmental Origins of Child Health: From Womb to Society.” A luncheon reception will follow at 11:30 a.m. in the multipurpose room (140).

Santos is an internationally renowned nurse researcher in the field of social determinants of health, particularly among Latinx communities, with a special emphasis on maternal-child health and developmental outcomes among at-risk children.

Santos is a professor and the Dolores J. Chambreau Endowed Chair in Nursing at the University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies and president of the International Society of Nurses in Genetics.

The Jane and Robert Cizik Lecture is an annual series made possible as part of a foundational $25 million gift from Jane Cizik and her late husband, Robert. The school was renamed in honor of the Cizik family’s 2017 gift, which also established endowments to support faculty research and student scholarships.

Register by Wednesday, April 17. 

This activity will provide 1.0 contact hour of nursing professional development. Cizik School of Nursing is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
