2020 TSAOHN Awards Announcement

TSAOHN has six awards available:

In 2020 we received applications for the TSAOHN Chapter and the TSAOHN Jean Davis graduate level scholarship. It is my great pleasure today to announce the winners of the 2020 TSAOHN awards.

2020 TSAOHN Chapter Merit Award
The recipient of the 2020 TSAOHN Chapter award remains a dynamic, active chapter that continuously strives to provide educational, CNE certified monthly presentations from various professionals. It has been working through all the challenges 2020 has brought and the chapter leadership has utilized the virtual meeting tools to bring the meetings to the members in the convenience of their home/office. They have been able to post job openings and their communications director has been doing an excellent job of sending out announcements from TSAOHN and AAOHN. In 2019 they were able to take on outreach projects to provide supplies to local shelters and also include ADN students to participate in the chapter meetings to learn about Occupational Health Nursing. This chapter is doing an excellent job! Congratulations Houston TSAOHN chapter on winning the 2020 TSAOHN Chapter Award. Your chapter will be receiving a check for $300.00.

2020 TSAOHN Jean Davis Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarship Award
Jean Davis was a dedicated member and president of the Fort Worth AAOHN as well as the Vice Present of the Fort Worth Texas AAOHN during the 1980’s. She also served as the OHN for the Miller’s Insurance Company for many years. The Jean Davis Scholarship Award is in the honor of the hard work and dedication she showed to Occupational Health Nursing.

The purpose of this award is to strengthen nursing practice by providing financial assistance to an TSAOHN member enrolled in an academic program (undergraduate/graduate) that will lead either to an Associate degree, Baccalaureate, Master’s or Doctoral Degree.

The recipient of the 2020 TSAOHN Jean Davis Graduate Scholarship is seeking her Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing Science from Texas Woman’s University to become an expert in Occupational Health Nursing. She has obtained an MSN from the University of Houston and an MPH from the University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill. She is currently a Substance Abuse Nurse Case Manager at Shell Americas in Houston. Congratulations Dawn Mopkins! You will be receiving a $3,000.00 check from TSAOHN.
