The 2017 Society of Rogerian Scholars Conference in Flagstaff, Arizona was very exciting! On behalf of the planning committee, I would like to extend my appreciation to the Interim Director of the Nursing School, at the University of Northern Arizona, Dr. Pamela Stetina for sponsoring a wonderful, welcoming opening ceremony.
It was exciting to see so many new and emerging Rogerian Scholars at this conference. Four recipients of the Scholars Fund presented their work based on Unitary Science! There was much exciting dialogue about the Science of Unitary Beings (SHUB) and around ideas that intersect with SHUB. Presenters described research using modalities such as pet therapy, therapeutic touch, quilting, creative expression, yoga, and meditation to promote creating caring healing environments. Others presented work on energy field and infusing SHUB into curricula.
Please stay tuned to this web page for more information about next year’s conference to be held at New York university on October 5-7, 2018. I am sure this conference will again promote much dialogue about Unitary Science’s role in the future of nursing.
