NINR director Dr. Patricia Grady recently delivered the commencement address for the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center New Orleans. The commencement included nearly 900 students from 6 different schools: allied health professions, nursing, public health, graduate studies, dentistry and medicine.

Grady discussed how the LSU community exhibits resilience in the face of adversity, as evidenced during Hurricane Katrina and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. She said having resiliency is a pivotal attribute to providing better health care and a quality that will serve students well in their future careers.

Grady also commended the schools for their cross-disciplinary collaboration, which she noted is the cornerstone of providing coordinated care in a health care environment that is increasingly complex. “[I urge you] to recognize that your training and future experiences will instill each of you with a unique body of knowledge that you will share with your colleagues from other disciplines so that, together, we may provide the best possible care to those seeking treatment,” Grady said.
