We are delighted to congratulate HELI 2018 alumna Dr. Dora Clayton-Jones on her acceptance to the second cohort of the Betty Irene Moore Fellowship for Nurse Leaders and Innovators at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis!
Dora Clayton-Jones, PhD, RN, CPNP-PC, is an assistant professor at Marquette University, Arthur J. Schmitt Leadership Fellow and president of the International Association of Sickle Cell Nurses and Professional Associates. Her research focuses on interventions for adolescents and young adults living with chronic illnesses such as sickle cell disease. Dr. Clayton-Jones’ fellowship project tests the feasibility of an intervention designed to optimize self-management behaviors and peer support for adolescents and young adults living with sickle cell disease. The project has the potential to influence implementation of effective interventions for this population prior to a sickle cell patient’s transition from pediatric to adult health care.
The Betty Irene Moore Fellowship program recognizes early- to mid-career nursing scholars and innovators and requires they take part in an innovative project or study. Fellows receive $450,000 over three years for their project plus $50,000 for their home institution. Applications for the 2022 cohort open Sept. 24. To learn more, visit the fellowship program webpage.

Congratulations and best of luck with your project, Dr. Clayton-Jones!
