Martha N. Hill, RN, PhD, FAAN, dean at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing in Baltimore, was chosen by the Daily Record for its 2013 list of 50 Influential Marylanders. The statewide business, legal and government newspapers list honors individuals who have made significant contributions in their fields and continue to be regarded as leaders in Maryland, according to a news release.
“Im proud for all of us at the school,” Hill said in the news release. “Life grants you only so many opportunities to truly make a difference.
“If I, personally, have helped influence a greater understanding and appreciation of the importance of nursing in Baltimore, in Maryland, or anywhere else, that is tremendously gratifying.”
Hill will relinquish the JHUSON deanship later this year to resume her research into overcoming healthcare disparities and improving hypertension care and control among urban, underserved African-Americans.
Hill and 49 other Influential Marylanders from 10 categories (civic leadership, communications, education, finance, freestyle, health care, law, philanthropy, real estate and technology) will be honored at a cocktail reception March 21 at the Grand Lodge in Cockeysville, Md.
She also will be profiled in the Influential Marylanders magazine, distributed at the cocktail reception and published March 22 in the Daily Record.
