Lynn Callister named 2003-2004 Fulbright Scholar

A faculty member from the Brigham Young University College of Nursing has been named a Fulbright Scholar.

Lynn Callister will use the award to continue her work and research in global women's health. Through the Council for International Exchange of Scholars and the United States Department of State, Callister will work with the St. Petersburg State Medical Academy in the spring of 2004.

Every year, the U.S. Fulbright Scholar Program sends 800 scholars and professionals, chosen for their leadership potential, to more than 140 countries, where they lecture or conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields.

"This is a marvelous honor for the College of Nursing. Very few nursing faculty receive this honor," said Dean Elaine Marshall.

Callister will consult on curriculum and research, as well as provide educational support in maternal and newborn nursing, women's health and nursing research at the medical academy's School of Nursing.

She will also be working with the American International Health Alliance and the United States Agency for International Development to conduct outcome evaluations of the St. Petersburg Women's Wellness Center.

Callister has worked for several years to build relationships with Eastern European physicians and nurses to increase the quality of women's health.

In 2001, she gave a presentation at the third United States-Russian Nursing Conference in Moscow on collaborative international research and facilitated a discussion on global women's health.

Following this trip, Callister continued her efforts by working as editor of a special issue for The Journal of Perinatal and Neonatal Nursing. The 2002 issue focused on global health care in perinatal and neonatal nursing. Callister also co-authored two articles for the journal, "Challenges and Opportunities: The Health of Women and Newborns in the Russian Federation" and "Acculturation and perinatal outcomes in Mexican immigrant childbearing women: An integrative review."

As a result of her work, Callister has helped to identify potential humanitarian service efforts and potential collaborative projects in health promotion.

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.
