Dr. Alexandre & Collaborative Covid-19 Research
Today's spotlight belongs to Dr. Margarett Alexandre, who joined York College in Fall 2012.
A Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine and Jonas Salk Scholar alumna, Dr. Alexandre's areas of expertise includes Medical Surgical Nursing and Nursing Administration. We admire her honorable work with amputees in the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. She bridges this passion with a course created here at York, focused on service-learning and traveling abroad.
As the first elective course in the nursing program, this course allows students to research, travel, learn and reach underserved communities, allowing students and faculty to work alongside healthcare professionals locally and globally. Her community initiatives both nationally and internationally involve student mentoring, transcultural nursing education, service-learning and active learning strategies. Her student study abroad in Haiti and Moldova program, is popular with Nursing students is popular and transformative.
Dr. Alexandre has played a crucial role in the development of a research study addressing the incidence of hypertension among college students throughout the metropolitan area, as well as a collaborative study investigating mental health and sleep amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate the inspiration that you've poured into our students and we appreciate all that you do!
Thank you, Dr. Alexandre, for the fantastic work that you do!
