    Dr. Hildegard Hendrickson Memorial Dedication
    Sunday, June 8, 1 p.m.
    Near the entrance of Hunthausen Building

    Last summer Dr. Hildegard Hendrickson, who retired from the faculty of the Albers School in 1996, went missing while, it is believed, she was pursuing one of her favorite pastimes, mushroom hunting. She was never found.
    The Seattle Mycological Society has planted an apple tree in Dr. Hendrickson’s memory on the Seattle University campus, near the entrance of the Hunthausen Building. A plaque has been placed to mark the tree. On June 8, the one-year anniversary of Dr. Hendrickson’s disappearance, the tree will be dedicated. President Stephen Sundborg, S.J., will bless the tree, followed by remarks from Albers professors Dr. John Eshelman and Dr. Rex Toh, colleagues of Dr. Hendrickson and two representatives from the Mycological Society. Please pass this information on to anyone else who you think might want to remember Dr. Hendrickson in this way. For more information, contact Barb Hauke in the Albers School of Business and Economics at or 296-5732.

    Nursing’s Lunchtime Scholar Series- “Community-Based Elder Care in Taiwan: the Linkage between Health Promotion and Disabled Services”
    Friday, June 6, 12:30-1:30 p.m.
    Hunthausen 100

    The College of Nursing Lunchtime Scholar Series welcomes I-Chuan Li, visiting scholar at SU and professor of nursing from the Institute of Community Health Nursing at the National Yang-Ming University in Taiwan. The optimal goal of services for older adults is to empower them to have more control over their lifestyle and to promote their quality of life. In her presentation, Li will discuss the care model for elders in Taiwan and how to combine “age-friendly” projects aimed at health promotion with long-term care services into a community-based continuum care service model.
    Li is in residence as a visiting scholar at SU for spring 2014. During her time with the College of Nursing, she has focused her research on understanding the impact of resource consumption and care quality in long-term care facilities through the use of needs assessment tools. She is a professor at the School of Nursing, National Yang-Ming University in Taipei city, Taiwan. She received her doctoral degree in health policy and community health nursing from Indiana University.
