BYU creates Mary Ellen Edmunds Nursing Endowment for the Healer's Art

Will celebrate at gala banquet April 6

The Brigham Young University College of Nursing has announced the creation of the Mary Ellen Edmunds Nursing Endowment for the Healer's Art.

To celebrate the event, the College of Nursing will host a gala dinner on Wednesday, April 6, at 6:30 p.m. in the Wilkinson Student Center Ballroom. To register for the gala or to contribute to the endowment, contact Sarah Landgren at (801) 422-2192 or email nursing-dev@byu.edu for details.

The endowment was created to honor the outstanding nursing legacy of Mary Ellen Edmunds, a BYU nursing alumna and emeritus faculty member.

Edmunds was a director of training at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, and a member of the Relief Society General Board of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She also served full-time proselyting and welfare missions in Asia and Africa.

"I believe so deeply in the philosophy of learning and practicing the Healer's art," says Edmunds. "It's an honor to be able to help others have the same opportunity."

The Mary Ellen Edmunds Nursing Endowment will provide resources for nursing students as they strive to learn and master the Healer's art at BYU. As an endowment, the fund will continue to provide financial support perpetually.
