Elmira College is able to bring this professional healer to the College through a generous gift that provides primary funding for the Dr. Anita B. Ogden Memorial Symposium. Additional support is provided by Rho Gamma Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing and Professional Nurses of the Twin Tiers.
Dr. Anita B. Ogden, a nationally known nursing leader, was Director of Elmira College Nurse Education Program from 1989 until her death in 2000. Dr. Ogden considered complementary therapies to professional nursing care and an important adjunct to traditional medicine. Primary funding for support of the symposium comes from an endowment established in Dr. Ogden’s memory that is supported by colleagues, alumnae and friends.
