The School of Nursing and Midwifery recently hosted an alumni event with broadcaster and publishing entrepreneur Norah Casey as the keynote speaker. The response was provided by Dr David Prendergast, a social anthropologist and Principal Investigator with the Intel Collaborative Research Institute for Sustainable Connected Cities. The event was attended by alumni, School staff, representatives from partner health care services, industry, and research bodies. Professor Agnes Higgins, Head of School, welcomed everybody and highlighted the strategic importance of the event in building relationships with current and future alumni, as well as developing collaborations with industry and practice in relation to advancing the research agenda of the School. 

Norah Casey’s presentation entitled the ‘Power of You’ was an inspiring insight into how her personal life events have influenced her professional journey and career decisions.  Norah challenged the audience to use their potential to grow and to fulfil ambition and individual aspirations. 

The response by Dr David Prendergast reflected his personal and professional involvement with The Laura Lynn Foundation. Dr Prendergast also noted the School’s expansion in research activity and capacity, and highlighted the development of the Centre for Practice and Healthcare Innovation, the vast expertise available within the school and support for advances in healthcare research and innovation for the future. 

In closing the event, Professor Mary McCarron, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, thanked both speakers for their inspirational words and commitment to the School of Nursing & Midwifery and spoke of the inspiration that the alumni present also represented, thanking them for the critical leadership and clinical roles they play in health care, services and education. She particularly spoke of her appreciation of their interest in staying connected to the School and looked forward to seeing them at future events.

The Alumni Committee wish to thank the Trinity Foundation, World Travel Centre, Cardiac Services, ExOrdo, Kopikat and Codex Office Products who sponsored the event.
