What is the Patricia E. Thompson Giving Circle?

The Patricia E. Thompson Giving Circle in Support of Global Nursing Research was created in honor of STTI CEO Pat Thompson’s commitment to advancing nursing knowledge around the world.

Annual donations to the giving circle make possible a minimum US $10,000 global nursing research grant.
The first grant was awarded in 2013 to Ana M. Kelly (photographed to the right with Pat Thompson) of Alpha Psi Chapter (USA) for her study focused on tuberculosis treatment.
