Belmont nursing students, along with associate professor Dr. Beth Youngblood, were awarded the 6th Annual Project Blossom Award by the Metro Department of Health. They received the award for serving as event planners and prenatal care teachers in the Teen Conference, for pregnant teens in the Davidson County school system, and the Incredible Baby Shower project.
Project Blosson is an initiative from the Governor’s office to decrease the state’s infant mortality rate. The award is given for playing a major role in “saving babies and eliminating perinatal disparities in Nashville and Davidson County.”
The Belmont group received the award at Nursing Excellence Night on Nov. 15 following the induction on new Sigma Theta Tau members.
