Nazareth College Nursing Faculty Member Receives IBERO Volunteer of the Year Award

14 Nov

Nazareth College is proud to announce that Marie Bell, assistant professor in the nursing department, was selected as this year’s recipient of the IBERO-American Action League’s Volunteer of the Year Award. Bell is active in IBERO, serving the first and third Wednesday of the month at Centro de Oro, a day center for Hispanic older adults. She provides assessment services such as blood pressure readings, medication reconciliation, and follow up care.

The IBERO Volunteer of the Year Award is presented every year, recognizing an individual who has collaborated with IBERO, supporting the agency’s mission. Bell attended a recognition ceremony at IBERO’s 44th Annual Luncheon held on October 24, 2012, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel of Rochester. The event included distinguished guests, as well as more than 500 participants, and honored four members of the community.

IBERO-American Action League, Inc., has provided services to the community since 1968. The agency has established different programs that offer to assist the Latino population within the community. At Nazareth, the nursing program’s goal is to prepare professional nurse generalists who not only possess an in-depth knowledge of nursing, but also provide culturally congruent nursing care to individuals, families, groups, and communities in and across all environments.
