Keynote Speaker:
Nancy Glass PhD, MPH, RN is a Professor at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and Associate Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health. Her several research projects aim to improve safety, health, and economic security and address gender inequity in diverse community and clinic settings. Dr. Glass works to implement and evaluate innovative primary prevention programs that challenge social norms that sustain violence against women in humanitarian settings. She has also helped examine the prevalence of gender-based violence (GBV) in the three regions of Somalia (South Central, Puntland, and Somaliland) to inform GBV programs and service. Dr. Glass works to improve health care systems' response through a partnership that examines the feasibility and acceptability of ASIST-GBV to identify survivors of GBV in health settings with displaced and refugee populations in Kenya after developing the screening tool in Ethiopia, Uganda, and Colombia.
