BYU's Barbara A. Heise selected for national leadership training program

Barbara A. Heise, an assistant professor in the College of Nursing at Brigham Young University, has been selected through competitive application for Lead, the National League for Nursing’s new leadership development program designed for nurse educators in rapid transition to positions of faculty and administrative leadership.

The initial Lead cohort includes only 30 nurse-educators chosen from colleges and universities around the United States. These participants will engage in activities that focus on strategic planning, building high performance teams, financial management and crafting personal plans for career advancement.

Heise joined the BYU faculty in 2005. She is a member of BYU’s Gerontology Program Committee, formed to develop the BYU gerontology minor. Her research focuses on older adults and the use of a USB drive for their personal health records. Attending physicians update the USB, providing patients and health care providers with ready access to the individual's health history.

Extensive research on the patterns and outcomes of health care use among at-risk alcohol users was the basis for Heise’s doctoral dissertation from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville. She received bachelor's and master's degrees in nursing from Missouri Southern State College and State University of New York, respectively.

Going cashless to prevent COVID-19 was useless, new BYU microbiology study finds

May 12, 2022
A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
